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!
