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.

    Waow! What a blast! Well, I think this subjective. Real men are good companions. Read my poem: Because I am a Special Man (Report) Reply

    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
    and
    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 (Report) Reply

    I've been told I have a men's look when I can't find things - is this part of the men's syndrome? (Report) Reply

    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 … (Report) Reply

    A very interesting point of view. True for many but not all men. I have known some great hardworking men and women in my life. I will try my best not to be among the men in the poem. Thanks, for sharing... Ayman. (Report) Reply

    Some men are like bossy type..just sit down and watched TV scrolling the remote control..
    They just wait to be called for food or rather serve him with food and drink..
    Don't talk to him nor disturb him.Call him, he can't hear you his mind goes inside the movie. :) (Report) Reply

    Reading the content of the poem, I realise that the word men, in the poem doesn't only refer to the masculine gender but a general term for humans. You are right, many men spend so much time on things that do not yield much importance... I believe this is a wake up call. God bless you (Report) Reply
