saving the world from a future ungrateful bastard

a woman asked me tonight
if she could borrow my
sperm one day to have a
child that i would never
have to have anything
to do with

i politely declined, citing
my belief that my father's
dna shouldn't pollute the
earth any longer than it
absolutely has to

she understood my
reasoning given her
own dysfunctional

but she reiterated that i
was the only man that
she would ever want
to father her child

i told her thanks as
the names and faces   
of countless other
men better suited for
the job ran through
my head
