Women's Problems
Author: Capricorn


Women's problems start in their teens.
Men won't understand what this means,
`cause men have no idea, but then-
women's problems all start with men.

Starting then with menstruation,
varying in its duration.
Often menstrual cramps they feel,
passing them off as `no big deal'.

Raising kids often causes stress,
constant demands brings on distress;
causing hysteria to frown,
soon bringing on mental breakdown!

Older women find hormones pause,
better known as the menopause;
causing mood swings and night time sweats.
Men don't know just how tough life gets!

If her womb gets sick,she'll agree
to have a hysterectomy.
Women's problems when they exist
- visit a gynaecologist.

To recap this I'll say again,
women's problems all start with MEN.
MEN-sruation most of her life,
MEN-strual cramps can cause her strife.

Life brings on HIS-teria now,
continued stress ....MEN-tal breakdown.
MEN-opause, HIS-terectomy,
all part of G(U)Y-naecology.

This is only a joke, you see!
We love you MEN and all agree,
though women's problems start with MEN,
MEN are always there at the end -

------- Author's Notes -------

I cannot take the credit for the ideas behind this poem as they come from a joke I recently read, but the words and rhyme are mine,and the last idea of men being there at the end.

I have always considered women to be stronger/smarter then men.

Women have always been the target of so much pain, physical pain which leads to emotional pain which leads and leads and leads. Also, I basically, think that women have more "smarts" than men, you can resolve a probelm in five minutes while men will do a white paper on it. You did a fine job in a clever way, of presenting such truth and honesty. You took no prisoners with this one Cap.

My dunce's hat is off to you!
