My heart is beating rapidly,
my clothes are soaked in sweat.
If there’s anything that I fear more,
I haven’t found it yet.
I am terrified and shaking
and wish that I could run,
but know there is no backing out.
if victory’s to be won.
There’s one with far more courage,
who I truly wish were here,
but this great task is mine alone
and I must persevere.
The manly power inside me says,
“You’re stronger than you think.
Go change the baby’s diaper
and remove that awful stink!”
