By Both For Ever After - Poem by Barry Van Allen
A man is not a woman,
... Well, there is no surprise,
... What men think,
... Women DO not think,
... and the fact is,
... neither do it very well,
... at times.
A man is what a man is,
and a woman is what she is,
it doesn't work until it works,
and when it does... it barely does!
They just end up looking silly,
being all in love that way,
it is not as if they could stop themselves,
....because if they they could,
they would... or so they say!
They wanted to, but couldn't,
something from a lot of feelings,
that they still don't quite understand,
and that makes them act like idiots.
They smooch each others faces,
every chance they get,
and get naked when they can...
though no one is supposed to know,
just how bad that really is...
... they do it, just the same,
... knowing it's not right.
As they walk away from real life,
they walk right into a real life,
the kind that costs them everything,
when the secret, becomes a fact.
Guys are geysers,
girls are always spouting,
and gentlemen do what they do,
... Women are the toughest,
and the roughest, of the two,
and no revenge is ever good enough!
When it is said and sometimes done,
nothing is ever good enough!
and the only thing that either wanted,
was to be put up on the ' Top Shelf '!
BUT, they could do that for each other,
to them, that's all that really mattered,
and then everybody had to live with it...
and live with them, for ever after!
