Polygamy and Ben Laden
Poor Ben Leyden has his polygamy problems
Polygamy is forbidden by both the church and the state,
A man can go to jail for having two wives to procreate.
Itís listed in the criminal code as a statutory offense,
So donít get any notions Ďcause this issue is immense.
I doubt that these relationships run as smooth as silk.
Personalities of three wives of completely different ilk,
Could indeed be a heaven but more likely a hell,
And to feed and house all these folk you need a big hotel.
Career women and the feminists could do their own thing,
Babysitting problems by the wife in the west wing,
And they could all support each other like a communist group,
But this type of organization has been proven full of poop,
So I pity poor Ben Leyden with all those nagging wives,
And twenty kids all hiding wondering who survives,
Add in Afghanistan, without a shave and living in a cave,
And a few daisy cutter bombs might make a man behave.
