Edward Iacona

The amount of children a family has

Brings a long historical fascination.

From the 1700's to the present day

Regardless of the nation.

Judging from all the coverage,

On TV and in magazines,

Having many children now,

Is still odd, or so it seems.

There are interviews and reality shows,

They are the darlings of the media.

From the Dionne's to the "Octomom",

They are all on Wikipedia.

It is the considered opinion,

Of this thoughtful New Yorker,

That the reason these gals have so many kids,

Is that they are the victims of a "stork-er".
