The Misogynist - Poem by Francis Duggan

He does hate all women just because of his ex wife
Twenty years ago she walked out of his life
And took with her their young son and daughter to start a new life elsewhere
In a distant town in the big World out there

Their marriage in time lasted a decade span
Till she grew tired of being controlled by her controlling man
His dominating ways on their marriage eventually took toll
And on leaving him she did escape his control

His wife leaving and taking their children with her to his hatred of women gave rise
In his way of thinking this is not a surprise
That all women like all men are different he fail to realize
But then males who are bullies are also not wise

Since then he has had a few love affairs but none of them did last
Since he did return to his ways of the past
The controlling gene in him he could not keep at bay
The main reason any woman with him did not stay

On his wife leaving him misogyny in his mind took to flame
And for his loveless life women he does blame
He has grown to treat all women as his foes
Among humanity there are all kinds one has to suppose.
