I Want To Be The Man In The Relationship - Poem by Elena Plotkin

I want to be the man in the relationship,
I am sure you can under-stand.
I want to be the girl,
that promises you the world,
then takes it all back.

I want to be the one,
who says I'm coming home
just soon as I can,
when really I'm in bed
having sex,
with another man.

I want to be the kind,
you wait the whole day for,
just to see me walk through that door
grab the tv remote
and check the latest score.

I want to be the man in the relationship,
I am sure you can under-stand.
I want to be the girl,
that promises you the world,
then takes it all back.

I want to be the one,
who has all the fun,
while you're in the kitchen
busy cooking food for everyone.

I want to be the kind,
that speaks her mind,
and tells you,
that you need to change,
because all your nagging,
is driving me insane!

I want to be the man in the relationship,
I am sure you can under-stand.
I want to be the girl,
that promises you the world,
then takes it all back.

I want to be the one,
who swears up and down,
that you're the only man I need,
that there's nothing going on
and who are you going to believe!

I want to be the kind,
that will beg and plead,
on my hands and knees,
for just another chance
because our love deserves,
a fighting chance.

I want to be the man in the relationship,
I am sure you can under-stand.

    “I want to be the man in the relationship,
    I am sure you can under-stand.
    I want to be the girl”

    is that anything like “I want to have my cake AND eat it too.” ? I’m glad I kept reading. Before long I caught your meaning of “be the man”.
    ======================
    I almost laughed here; it was a very weak attempt. I think, deep down, I felt too guilty (as a “man”) to laugh; besides, You-Know-Who might have heard me and asked questions! :

    “I want to be the one,
    who swears up and down,
    that you're the only man I need,
    that there's nothing going on
    and who are you going to believe.” …………. - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    “under-stand” …………… hmmm? might you be SUGGESTING that a man would NOT understand? that a man is incapable of seeing the woman’s side. WHERE did you get a crazy idea like THAT! ? ? OH, that’s right; you ARE a woman. hee-hee.

    very entertaining! now, BACK TO THE KITCHEN, Elena! (barefoot and pregnant: the woman’s life)

    great use of ‘repetition’. to MyPoemList. Maybe, after I have my sex-change, I’ll appreciate it even more.
