Why me (?)

Why me (?)
Approximately.

In all the world,
   of the 
3,739,142,333 women
   of the 
3,805,654,920 men.

  (On the 24th August)

What chance that mum met dad?

   of the 
525 billion lifetime sperm,
   of the 
400 eggs matured,

what chance that meeting?

But mum did meet dad, 
   and 
one sperm did meet one egg, 
   and
that is why I am able to ask:
why me, 
   why me, 
      why me?

Or to confirm,
    why me, 
       to me,
and 
    why you, 
       to you.

By chance (?)
Approximately.


And then,
   perchance, 
you might ask of me,
   what is the chance 
that I,
   created by chance,
   could by chance,
answer our question:

can chance ever be
so approximated?
