SWEET LITTLE SPERM

 

Keep moving your tail,
sweet little sperm.
Show us what you are made of,
thrive to compete,
reach for the stars
in England’s global dream.

 

Keep moving your tail,
sweet little sperm.
Don’t worry if it’s just white tissue
where you have to navigate:
The world’s changing fast,
don’t refrain to adapt
to exciting new terrains.

 

Keep moving your tail,
sweet little sperm.
We don’t want any
foreign,
faster,
bastard
sperm
to get there,
to get anywhere,
in fact,
before you.

 

Keep moving your tail,
sweet little sperm,
if you’re idle, you’ll be dead.
I know there is no egg,
but who needs more of them
if technology will soon
allow to replicate,
even in their solitude,
individuals like you
who can’t find a mate?

 

Keep moving your tail,
sweet little sperm,
it’ll do you good.
You don’t want to be fat,
like me,
or have cholesterol.

Keep moving your tail,
sweet little sperm,
it’s in your DNA
(and in my IDS),
like our sporting traditions,
discipline, skill,
our culture of duty,
glorious league tables,
sacrifice, routine.

 

Keep moving your tail,
sweet little sperm,
but do not demonstrate!
Do not complain!
Do not affiliate!
Put a brave face
and get on with it!
Keep calm, carry on!
Don’t believe what anyone says,
just believe in you.

 

Keep moving your tail,
sweet little sperm.
Your welfare depends
on the vibrancy of your motion,
your speed up the stream
and so does my wage,
and my job,
and the profits of thousands
of savvy businessmen
who trade
with the energy
of the movement
of your tail,
sweet little sperm.
