The Errant Male

Safe in the ken that he will not give birth:

equality for him is just a word.

He.. only has to shave his neck and face

and the same hairdo lasts for years.. decades.

And though emancipation washes by;

like-minded friends abundantly concur:

same work.. more pay.. is a cadre.. to comply

with thoughts that wrinkles add to character.

Ah yes! There's comfort for the errant male:

that he can play with toys for his whole life

and has the wide world for a urinal.

Can do his nails with an old pocket-knife;

and somewhat vaguely, he may be aware

of little people, passing on the stair.

Bah, proletarian propaganda....and I LOVE it!

 

Very astute:

 

has the wide world for a urinal.

.....

somewhat vaguely, he may be aware of little people

 

I also, just tonight, got my newsletter from the Socialist Labor Party. Perfect timing.

I hope I am not off center here. I read this as "tongue in cheek." A great play on words and common views. My favorite line: and has the wide world for a urinal. A humorous real life view of manhood. Paco

Thanks guys. It's meant to be tongue in cheek (visions of Homer......Simpson). I condensed it from a lengthy, humorous satirical blog someone sent me for a joke. I enjoyed the original humour although it borders on a dilute form of misogyny. :biggrin: G.

Doh! Was I ever on the wrong train!
