Revolutionary gonad

(For Steve Gigl, by request)

Somewhere in a tube Fallopian
Is an ovum meant for me
Which will share my dreams utopian
And a chromosome or three

Revolutionary gonad
We are up against the walls
As our leader is created
Between uterus and balls

Oh, my views are quite contrarian
And thus subject to attack
But they can't be called lapsarian
Since they haven't left the sack

Revolutionary gonad
Our positions will take guts
And the source of all our power
Well, it's right here in the nuts

There's a certain similarity
As you go from his to hers
You need not invert polarity
When this wondrous thing occurs

Revolutionary gonad
Hanging low and waiting here
Hoping someday for insertion
Let those passages be clear

OK, you just made my weekend! Should I be worried that that's the first time anyone's written a song for me?...

'Tis only a poem. You gotta do the music yourself. :)

This won't require much of a tune. (I have written about seven songs, but four of them turned out to be "Walk, Don't Run".)

That could be a They Might Be Giants song.
