Questioning Love (2) 

Does love have the strength to overcome hate? 
Or are the victory margins so small 
It is impossible to estimate? 
How many hearts would need to heed love’s call? 

In a line of faces waiting for the bus
there’s no obvious indicator to tell
If a goofy smile signals love or lust
Or a text message spells heaven or hell.

If Adam had managed to cool his desire
Would paradise gained be a safer place
Though still besieged by the devil’s ire
And constricted by passionless strait-lace?

Does it all come down to pheromones
As the scientists would have us believe
A bacterial world with sexy zones
Where miniature matchmaking strikes at speed

When push comes to shove, finding the one
Ends with mathematical persuasion
A high sperm count beats top-10  handsome
And data, not love, drives procreation.
