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 are men they will never change so do women r women they will never change, one should accept this fact and live peacefully. (Report) Reply

    Certainly this analogy could be said of both genders...It's nice to write what others only think..... (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 nice short poem. Good to read again as it catches many of us men flat footed. (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

    we're not all like that! I rarely watch TV these days. There's nothing on worth watching. I did watch Virunga on Netflix a couple of months ago, and just submitted a poem with that title today.
    Great poem in any case (and I know a few women like that, too) . (Report) Reply

    I love your poem here, really! I am a man, or at least a 52 year old male! Been everywhere, seen everything (yup, I am a male...bragging right off!) , and here I now am; drinking Brandy, reading poetry, and listening to Tom Petty sing You Don't Know How It Feels, and maybe you just don't, or perhaps I don't, or better still, I bet none of us do, know how it feels to be me that is; but let me tell ya, I don't give a hang for the tv if it's not an old black-n-white movie, and I sure do not lament over what aledgedly needs doing, because frankly, I do not care! Ha ha. I just love doing this, and not worrying about anything else at the moment. I really do love your poem though, it's so close to the general truth, but don't forget about us old men out here on the edges... we are a bit different, 'off' some would even say! Write-on...
