Me And Women
I am not a man of many women
Neither am i a man of few.
I have had me some pretty women,
Either one or two.
If a man was judged the the number of his women
I will be counted among lesser men.
But if a woman is judged alone,
By the content of her character and person,
Then i havd had me some good women.
The kind most men can only dream.
I am not a perfect man,
Neither strive i to be one.
It is my predicament though,
That women seek not men like me.
Neither seek i, women who
Do not know that man cannot be perfectly true.
I am not a man of many women,
At least not many that amounts nought.
I seek me one amongst the lot,
Not perfect, but whom i can boast of her worth.
