'Venus and Mars'
This title, I saved months ago… feeling all creative and sharp as a whip,
But now… I just stare at the title, and can’t come up with even a quip.
I suppose that, based upon the books written by a well know author named Ruth?
No, that’s not it, Ok, I’ll be honest with you, Now I'm giong to tell you the truth.
The bottom line is this, and it's quite simple, Women and Men are different...
As if that’s new to your ears,
but women need certain things to be happy,
And Men, they just want the 3 B’s… Boobs, Butts, and Beers.
Women, they need to be taken seriously and know that they matter,
They need to be listened to, talked to and held-
Especially when there’s no expectations of sex
to be had...
And us men, we need to realize these things,
Before we become Mr. Ex.
Women, they like to be treated like queens and princesses,
Because they are!
And give them our faithfulness and trust,
And us men, their Knights and their Kings,
We must learn to treat women as equals, Give them our hearts our souls, not just our lust- Or our bedroom play-things.
But don’t get me wrong now Girls,
I know you crave It as much as we…
If Not More!
So Men…Snap Out Of It!
And start acting like you have a clue…
Before you find that you’re out the door!
