Men! ! ! ! - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Men lament that they have no time to do things
needed being done.

Yet, they sit wasting time, watching T.V. for
hours at a time.

Not associating it with their apparent laziness
and lack of initiative.

    Men? Well why not say humans to include women too, and they must be, and avoid sexism. (Report) Reply

    'Men lament that they have no time' is a common refrain for men including me at times. This sweeping generalization might not be palatable to all. Thanks. (Report) Reply

    Is This Poetry?
    Is this poetry or a mere prosaic statement that tries to speak the truth, although not very clearly.
    For instance: 'needed being done' is bad English.

    The last two lines are clearly plain prose. It should be 'sheer laziness' not 'apparent'. Why be shy of speaking the truth?

    For real, True words my sister.

    Always hungry but don't like to cook
    Oldest trick in the book,
    We, as women gave them bad habit.
    Too late to change it.

    Love it! ! !

    I didn't realize you'd met me! No, I'm too busy on PH to watch Tv. Mind you I do copy my Cat's Buddhist philosophy a little too religiously. Good message.

    blame all the men and docs
    for a listless life
    when one is in coma
    and they do nothing

    ask them to consult me

    you are a doctor
    see deep into her eyes
    then there will be no surprise
    yourself be not surprised
    you have rendered your will
    her to live in coma still
    why come and ask me
    message me if you will
    yo are a doctor
    do not let innocent ones
    in coma live still...
    if you have a sensible will

    Revelation for Men

    When they come back worn out
    from work (usually) late
    in the evening,
    the men ugly throw down
    their shoes polished
    with much care in the morning.

    Behind the table they stay
    chew quickly
    a sharp morsel
    and go the cold beds
    (the children sleep with the new toys) .

    And they think to get to sleep
    this night without a dream.

    Sometimes in their dream the men cry …
