Men! ! ! ! - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Men lament that they have no time to do things
needed being done.

Yet, they sit wasting time, watching T.V. for
hours at a time.

Not associating it with their apparent laziness
and lack of initiative.

    A nice short poem. Good to read again as it catches many of us men flat footed. (Report) Reply

    A very interesting point of view. True for many but not all men. I have known some great hardworking men and women in my life. I will try my best not to be among the men in the poem. Thanks, for sharing... Ayman. (Report) Reply

    Some men are like bossy type..just sit down and watched TV scrolling the remote control..
    They just wait to be called for food or rather serve him with food and drink..
    Don't talk to him nor disturb him.Call him, he can't hear you his mind goes inside the movie. :) (Report) Reply

    Reading the content of the poem, I realise that the word men, in the poem doesn't only refer to the masculine gender but a general term for humans. You are right, many men spend so much time on things that do not yield much importance... I believe this is a wake up call. God bless you (Report) Reply

    we're not all like that! I rarely watch TV these days. There's nothing on worth watching. I did watch Virunga on Netflix a couple of months ago, and just submitted a poem with that title today.
    Great poem in any case (and I know a few women like that, too) . (Report) Reply

    I love your poem here, really! I am a man, or at least a 52 year old male! Been everywhere, seen everything (yup, I am a male...bragging right off!) , and here I now am; drinking Brandy, reading poetry, and listening to Tom Petty sing You Don't Know How It Feels, and maybe you just don't, or perhaps I don't, or better still, I bet none of us do, know how it feels to be me that is; but let me tell ya, I don't give a hang for the tv if it's not an old black-n-white movie, and I sure do not lament over what aledgedly needs doing, because frankly, I do not care! Ha ha. I just love doing this, and not worrying about anything else at the moment. I really do love your poem though, it's so close to the general truth, but don't forget about us old men out here on the edges... we are a bit different, 'off' some would even say! Write-on...

    Short and to the point. We all are guilty of this action
    at one time or another. Hopefully it won't get the best
    of us. Nice. (Report) Reply

    I met such men. And to be honest I met such women too. It's more about the lack of motivation, I think.
    But I should say that men are getting lost easier than women, maybe because women can't allow themselves to get lost when their children want to eat)
    Nice work! (Report) Reply
