Synchronized Swimming

they were chatting about the olympics
and she commented that
they never showed enough
synchronized swimming.

"these women are so amazing,"
she exclaimed.
"i mean, can you hold
your breath that long
while doing feats of athleticism
upside down in a pool
to music? in sync?"

he snorted and said,
"still, it's kind of silly."
and she thought that he
only said that because
he was male and
couldn't compete.
