RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Bronze Star - 6,036 Points (October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

Men! ! ! !


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.

    Female chauvinism. Ha ha. All men are not like this RoseAnn. A tongue in cheek write, intending to provoke a response. Naughy! (Report) Reply

    This one is short and sweet! There are men this type. I agree that most women are more active and lively then men. What can we do without women? (Report) Reply

    An undeniable truth, which should be about 50% true. I admire your brevity to challenge Men. Naturally men, males for that matter, are made to spend lot energy on what ever they engage on and relax. Man himself has designed numerous ways to do it. Great thinking. Bravo! (Report) Reply

    Though it may not be applicable to all but still I appreciate this finding. Many a men are merrily idling around in and around us with least work and big talks with male chauvinism. (Report) Reply

    Men always have time for war,
    And as Politicians, to steal and lie,
    More and more.

    Better they should watch TV and like children, not be heard nor seen.

    Great poem, thanks (Report) Reply

    Why do you blame men only. Yes in normal course every one is wasting time somewhere and most of us are victim of laziness. But i must thank you for awakening my dormant poetic spirit for which you deserve full marks. Thanks for share. Regards. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
