Being A Man
Author: Barbara Goodhew


A male Burping and passing gas the loudest,
is rude and a turnoff for the classiest.

Some males think being a pig, is being manly.
No respect,no consideration doesn't make a man.

Then they wonder why their mate isn't interested.

Show consideration and some manners,and we will
be interested.

Most women want a MAN, not a DISGUSTING BOY

Oh Barb, this has me rolling about this morning. Yet what you say is so true.What some men think is 'manly' behaviour is just not what women think -- and want. As usual you have written a 'to the point' poem. I have enjoyed reading -- and the laugh!!

Men save your boyish games for the boys.Thanks cap you understand what I'm saying.

a pootiful poem!

Barb, you are hilarious. I remember being a junior at high school, and there was this boy who didn't care where at all who heard him, he would just expel his gas and flip through the History Book as if nothing existed...and what's more, he never said 'excuse me'. Now if that don't make you pass by your favorite lunch day which is 'taco day or pizza day', I don't know what would.

And Barb, a whole lotta definitions have lost their true essence these days...such as in your poem here, the difference between 'boy' and 'man'.

But right on, right on Barb!

you don't like it either

For along time I thought I was weird not thinking it was funny while others thought it was hillarious.Now I know the laughter is to cover up the embarrassment. thanks meri.
