This poem is intended to poke fun at the sexes, however, not at the sexism!
It’s Not Quite A Man’s World!
Won’t eat real Quiche, this great Pretender,
Our TV-Remote Apprehender;
In Fantasy, World Class Contender,
Crass Sports Voyeur, e'er Couch Defender;
Lest Weekend Heroes abide Gender,
Quest where, when lost, ne’er, Pride, surrender!
As Matters of Fair Heart do render,
Brave, gen’rous Guy, last big-time Spender;
Best buy Bouquets, Bonbons to send her,
Forgives his Bride each Fender Bender;
Then with Panache, pens Poems so tender,
Takes out the Trash in loving Splendor!
