Zelda's Inferno exercise: "that revolution that chemists birthed"

This week's Zelda's Inferno exercise: write a poem whose lines all end in verbs, around the theme of today being both Mother's Day and the 50th anniversary of the pill

that revolution that chemists birthed
so that each baby might be a choice made
rather than an accident happened
fundamental rules of biology rewritten
women -- and therefore men, too -- liberated

the energy of sex, unchained
the reproductive urge, re-routed
sexual revolution, it is called
but more than sex it encompasses

by those chemists, the nature of families is changed
our relationships with each other are freed
and magic is unleashed
