    Dear Known Sperm Donor(s)

    Although there's too many of you
    out there I just wanted to say that
    it's not all your fault

    Hey, in this day and age of women
    "self-actualizing" they SELVES and stuff
    and taking our bodies into control
    I have to admit something very wrong
    in our souls

    Ok, and I'm guilty of thinking I could
    select the the man of my choice
    with the light brown eyes and the mellow voice
    and lay him down, take him 'round
    my world...make him shoot
    then give him the boot

    How could I think I could raise his seeds
    without benefit of his involvement
    giving no thought to my children's needs?

    What I think happened was, and please don't
    misunderstand...(women still really
    want to share love with a good man)

    But too many men were raised by
    struggling moms who spoiled y'all behinds
    trying to be mother and father
    and ultimately messing up y'all minds
    (that was never the plan, the purpose
    of the Design)

    Dear Known Sperm Donor(s)
    I do not hate...no one dreamed of
    the results this cycle would create

    Come, let's reason together
    the sistas WILL let you in
    before we "get down"
    let the "PEACE" talks begin
