Uncles - Poem by Stanley Cooper

It’s a fact throughout history
It lingers with persistence
That nephews can really never be
Without an uncles existence

Nieces have tried to go it alone
But found they needed their unc
A fact they really should have known
A fact they couldn’t debunk

Uncle Sam, in the U.S.
Is a very auspicious uncle
Apart, they’d cause great distress
As would Simon without Garfunkel

Macho men find it so appealing
That an uncle must be a he
This notion sends their heads a-reeling
That uncles ladies can’t be

Uncles are a special breed
To machos, that is a given
Uncles fill a special need
In this “auntsy” world they live in
