The Male Chauvinist


Now will you get in that kitchen
I’ve told you once before
And when you’ve washed all the pots up
Make sure you mop the floor

When you iron my shirts
You’d better iron each crease
And when you wash my jeans
Make sure you remove the grease

When I arrive home from work
I want my dinner ready
You should know what I expect
Since we’ve been going steady

You can pick up my clothes
That I have left on the floor
And hang them in the wardrobe
Where they were placed before

You will do as I say
Especially when we wed
So when you’ve done all the chores
Get yourself sexy and ready for bed!

    I wanted to read this poem, lured here by the title - and how brilliantly I was rewarded! The irony is just so delightful and hopefully moves the male species (of which I'm one) to some positive action in this area! Great work, Donna (Report) Reply

    it's so true....a fact surfaced so well...and so blauntly does it convey the truth, i paused and connected it to every woman who face it but can never raise a voice. (Report) Reply
