What is it with males?They challenge you to a match, and when you are eager and ready, they run away. I have always believed that the female species is the smarter of God's creation. Her downfall was when she relied on a man to decide how it is to be done. Didn't Eve ask Adam to decide whether to bite the apple or not?An honest query, my friends.

A Coward, A Buffoon, A Clown
By Doris F. Cornago

Do you know why I keep looking
So I won't forget every line
Of your face, every curl
of your hair, that nose
that I used to tweak
those lips that twitch
I need to remember
So when you go away
I will not forget how
In that moment of fear
You have withdrawn your hand
Erased all those messages in
Your mails, your Skype, in all
That reminds you of us, that used
To make you smile, now makes you frown
You are truly a coward, a buffoon, a clown...
