Katherine Hepburn once said, "Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then." Do you:

 Relational Dissonance

Usually Uncle Bonsai comes across as, well, just plain bitter when vocally crucifying matters of the heart. This just seems to fit the general vibe these days, all things considered.

Why I enjoy being a girl
Men and Women (c) 1988 Uncle Bonsai:

I knew a boy who said that loneliness would kill him
Until he met a woman who could only give him pain
I knew a girl who said no love could ever fill her
Until she met the only man her soul could not contain
They were married in the summer
And they honeymooned in Europe
And they settled down near Denver
And they hardly said a word
They had two point seven children
And a palace in the suburbs
And their's is the saddest story that I've ever heard

I knew a boy who said that happiness was lethal
Until he met a woman who could cut him down to size
I knew a girl who thought that every man was evil
She sorted through her suitors with a venom in her eyes
They were married in the winter
And they settled in the city
And they worked 'til they were tired
And they always seemed to fight
But when no one else could hear them
They would swear their love forever
And whisper through the passion everything's all right

Men and Women love each other
Men and Women try so hard
Men and Women wander freely
Armed and deadly
On their guard
Men and Women fool their neighbors
Men and Women rule the world
Men and Women, movers, shapers
Men and Women, boys and girls

I knew a boy who said that love could never find him
Until he met a woman who would claw her way inside
I knew a girl who said that love would never blind her
Until she met the only man the darkness couldn't hide
So they were married for a while
But they parted in September
When she saw that he was changing
And he knew she wouldn't die
But she thinks that he'll remember
And he knows that she'll forget him
And they still feel they were wrong to say good-bye

Men and Women cling together
Men and Women sing off key
Men and Women wince at incest
Prince or princess on their knee
Men and Women sagging shriners
Men and Women flags unfurled
Men and Women braggers, whiners
Men and Women boys and girls

He was a quiet man
The neighbors seemed to love him
He always smiled at the children passing by
No one could understand
What demons came to shove him
When he pulled the trigger
When the chainsaw started
Was it hard to figure
Was he broken-hearted
Did the neighbors marvel
At the sudden silence
Did he hate to carpool
Did it lead to violence
When they close the curtains
And they hide inside
Do they know for certain
If he lived or died

Men and Women stoop to conquer
Men and Women stoop so low
Men and Women filled with doubt
They scream about what they don't know
Men and Women host and hostess
Men and Women social climb
Men and Women fill the churches
Still the urges, kill some time
Men and Women take their places
Men and Women make some noise
Men and Women well-scrubbed faces
Men and Women girls and boys

(22) Jesus saw some infants at the breast. He
said to his disciples: These little ones at the
breast are like those who enter into the
kingdom. They said to him: If we then be
children, shall we enter the kingdom of heaven?
Jesus said to them: When you make the two one, and
when you make the inside as the outside, and
the outside as the inside, and the upper side
as the lower; and when you make the male and
the female into a single one, that the male
be not male and the female female; when you
make eyes in the place of an eye, and a hand
in place of a hand, and a foot in place of a
foot, an image in place of an image, then
shall you enter the kingdom of heaven.
From the Gospel of Thomas

Sorry, Peter, but interpreting Biblical references has never been my forté. If it's something you want me to understand, you have to explain.
