Uplifting and Inspirational

I'm breaking with a tradition I established and have adhered to when I first started writing bad poetry for this blog. Today's poem bucks this tradition in several ways. First of all, I wrote it many years ago, so unlike my other poems that you have read and enjoyed, today's poem wasn't written expressly for this blog. Secondly, this isn't what I consider a particularly bad poem. As limericks go, I think it's actually a pretty good one. And finally, in a very rare departure for me, this is a romantic poem. (And as a side note, it's also more uplifting and inspirational than the past few poems I posted.)

So in a way, it's a shame that such a tiny percentage of the world's English-speaking population reads this blog, because it means that hardly anyone will be able to enjoy this poem. On the other hand, I didn't really write it for others to enjoy; I wrote it for myself to enjoy, and I enjoy it a lot.

Of course, if you're one of the select few people who read this post, you'll have to decide for yourself whether or not you like today's poem. And since you won't be able to make a meaningful decision until you've actually read it, I am including it below.

There was a young robot from France
with a stainless steel dick in his pants.
His girlfriend from China
had a metal vagina,
and together they found true romance.
