If zygote formation thought it was best
to bring you together by two of the same,
(those mirror-image outliers dancing around,
given two letters for name)
then how could a being so deftly created
be subject to torment from that other kind?
Forgetting the lesson of that criss-cross pair,
submitting the body and mind.
For it was not certain that I’d be where I am
and nobody destined that you would be there.
Statistically speaking, we had the same chances
of matching that twenty-third pair.
Meiosis ensures for a fair distribution
and so it seems rightfully sound to exclaim:
If our cells conclude that our gametes are equal,
why can we not do the same?
