A Match Made On Earth

as we strolled down…
stepping on pine tree cones scattered on the green lawn

taking in the little bit of nature around town…
observing geese and squirrels living in unison

said she wanted a man who knows how to have fun…
but could also take control and get things done like Genghis Khan

and I never once claimed to be the one…
but I suppose she’d never met another ‘half dust, half diety’ under the sun

so she promised to bear me a daughter and a son…
as long as I agreed to build us a home, in her name, sorta like the Parthenon
