Do You Love Women? ? ?


Do you LOVE women? I mean, REALLY LOVE them?
I AINT talkin' prostitutes!
For the sake of daughters, sisters and mothers,
I AINT talkin' birthday suits!

Do you LOVE women? Including smart women?
The ones who earn more than you?
LOVE them beyond polished nails and red lipstick,
Beyond the latest hair-do?

LOVE them beyond the fleeting orgasm,
After the pleasure passes?
LOVE them beyond what they do for your body,
Beyond their tits and asses?

LOVE them, but know that no man may control them...
Love them with true expression.
And teach your sons from the very beginning
'She is not a possession! '

Do you LOVE women? I mean TRULY LOVE them?
Even in heels that are flat?
If you're not willing to LOVE and respect them...

You may prefer a doormat!

Or perhaps a blow up doll....

(Trump are you listening... Rosie was right!)

    I'd like to see Donald Trump answer the questions posed in this poem, one by one, I think he would fail miserably, exploiters of women suck! (Report) Reply

    Nice to see a man take on the abusers of woman-kind! ! ! ! That said, maybe women should care enough about themselves as to not allow anyone to mistreat them... period. (Report) Reply

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
