Lines upon learning that two professors from the University of Pennsylvania have concluded that men are currently happier than women

Celestial gonad in a mood no woman can destroy.
And Venus, dressed in sulfur-clouds, hovering by the sun,
Venus with cramps, with painful shoes, she is the sorrowing one.
How is it that men sit in all of the highest places
Despite the food falling out of their mouths, and the hair growing out of their faces?
