The Truth About Men
Adorned with masculinity, compassionate
A quiet aptitude, from man came woman, astute
Charming, scholar, heroic, enigmatic, resolute
XY chromosome meaning eloquently garrulous
Watchful protector, always making him fond
A friend in need, a builder of a strong bond
Handsome, virile, gentle, tends to listen then speak
A knight in armour, exudes his noble character
Understanding…the perfect partner for him and her.
The seed of life. Shpritz, the leader of the pack
Yet still able to be tender and give pleasure
Hologyny supplier measure for measure
A fashion icon, self assured, determined to win
A mentor. Full of aspirations and a will to conquer
To take forth life with the power of reason and vigour.
A propensity to survive, yet an ability to be hurt
To love deeply and intensely as only a father can do
A Pontist. A Rastaquouere. Most of all a lover of you!
