Concept Men.


We are concept Men
An embodiement of what men;
Should aspire to be
To the untrained, unkeen eye
We are unreal
And as true as that may be
The longest a pretender can front this -
is a week

We are concept Men,
If we were condemned
Our last request would be
A couple hours of;
Call of duty on X-Box 360
or better still...
The warmth of a woman
And a home cooked meal

We are concept Men
Few women can put up with us
Fear and disgust is what we inspire
For we see things as they are
So while you charm women's hearts
We sway Men's minds when we speak
Reality is our triple beam

We are concept Men
As in every man of our kind
There is a flaw- The future
That is where we squander our present -
Plotting, scheming
Of how will put our skeptics to shame
Accomplishing that which they deemed impossible
That is the business we are in

We are concept Men
Feast your eyes
Glut your soul
On our accursed magnificence
And our bodies are sand
Our thoughts are clay
And we eat and sleep with success.
