Old men search out
the perfect hole
and then erect
a standing pole
and wave their
flapping flag from it.
But when they have
a mighty pole,
young men seek out
whatever hole
and then they
fight to make it fit.

Girls, bless
their eager souls,
find their flags
on fallen poles
without the depth
that they require.
But women have
a different goal.
They know a
stronger, deeper pole
will wave their
flags much higher.
