Men! ! ! ! Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Men! ! ! !

Rating: 4.3

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.

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?

'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.

This is forthrightly hitting the nail on the head. I couldn't have said it better. However, it plainly discusses laxity but says a lot more figuratively. Thanks, poetess.

When a man has said he will do a thing, he will! No need to keep reminding him every six months or so😉
