He's No Less A Man Than You Are - Poem by Francis Duggan

He's no less a man than you are the one who can shed tears
Don't tell me how tough you are I've lived for too many years
And I've known macho types and manly stuff from them I did hear
Though machoism is a thing that I do not hold dear
I've seen brave men far braver than you for to weep
Unafraid to show their feelings their sorrow was deep
You are not man enough your feelings to show
Of what manhood is about you hardly would know
Boasting of how tough you are you seem to enjoy
You do sound a bit like the schoolyard bully boy
Talking tough trying to prove what a brave man you are
But for to find one braver one would not have to look far
In your thirtieth year of life not a twelve year old lad
To think your feelings you cannot show seems a little bit sad.
