*-* sHE with HE -


MEN - only we are part of
woMEN
sHE - only we are part of
HEr

Words created,
thoughts of mind
Letters spelling
seek and find -

The MEN in woMEN
The HE in sHE
Look for the man,
as we spell HEr with HE

woMEN from ribs of
HEr own, sHE created
Men of HEr rib, are they

'Most absurd! '
As we men beat our chests

If she appears not first then,
Why we a need for breasts?

    wow, how did you think of that. Amazing. I overlook the words and the spelling, or i am just careless.--men part of women, nice line.
    and the last two lines are cute and funny. witty write. (Report) Reply

    If she appears not first then... it is totally absure thinking on our part.. We are abusing the holy place of origin..In any form she is supreme and occupies respectful place.. nice piece of poetry...10 (Report) Reply
