Gryphons Shouldn't Marry

Eagles are monogamous for life--
lions, not so much. The half-and-halfs,
the gryphons, really shouldn't take a wife
or husband. "Marriage isn't just for laughs!"
declares the eagle head. But who'd decide
on matrimonial exclusiveness
when hinder parts insist upon their pride?
The private lives of gryphons are a mess.

Philosophers and moralists agree
that intellect is seated in the head
and passion should obey the brain's decree.
But as for gryphons... well, it must be said:
however virtuous the front appears,
the job of mating is left to the rears.
