Infidelity - Poem by gershon hepner

Infidelity is far more popular
that baseball, barbecues or ball-room dancing,
for changing partners when you're being copular
apparently can be far more entrancing
than many other pastimes popular for leisure,
though unrecorded in the books of Guinness,
but I believe it's wrong to knock such forms of pleasure
which should be recommended to all 'sinners, '
a word pejorative, judgmental and offensive
that should not even now be used by preachers.
If only infidelity were not expensive
I'd like to try it––there are lots of teachers,
for if it's true that nearly everybody does it,
that means your wife or husband does it too,
and that it's high time that you came out of the closet
and do to others as most others do.

Joseph Hopper writes about infidelity in 'Now Infidelity Comes Out of the closet' (the NYT, April 29,1999) . A 1994 survey performed by University of Chicago researchers found that 25 percent of men are unfaithful to their spouses and 12 percent of women.
