Some men can be great fun
life and soul of any party
others are kind and tender
sheltering their loved ones

They come in all shapes and sizes
the outside packaging not mattering
it is what is inside that defines a man
making him either a saint or a sinner

Men can be very controlling
wanting everything their way
jealous of allowing any freedom
being insecure in themselves

A man who is steadfast and true
shares with his partner in all
now this type of man is a keeper
so be sure not to lose him

Vain conceited handsome men
will not see what is clear
too busy checking their appearance
to notice what is going on

How ever a man comes is moot
as once the heart is involved
you may as well throw away
the rule book as it is obsolete

Now you guys may not agree
so I will also relate that
women are all of the above
with added twists and turns

You could also accept that as
Eve was made from Adam's rib
women have a definite advantage 
when it comes to understanding men

    That was such a good read Shadow. I think I have been all these things. I believe that women have the upper hand they came from life while men came from dust. Wonder if any one else sees this. Enjoyed your poem immensely....peter

    Shadow, you have a grip on the matters at hand. Can't argue one whit with you about us men. The Adam's rib theory also rings pretty much true.

    Men are from Mars and women from Venus..Enjoyed reading this one today..There are all kinds out there and one who is kind, considerate, helpful, loving, etc. is a much better catch than some of the others..Thanks for the honor of placing your winners' list..Sara

    Certainly you know men and certainly men cannot understand women, although the word that names you WOMAN= Wif Of Man, tries to hide men's disadvantage. Ha-ha! Great work Shadow!

    Beginning from earth and ended in space, loved you fun "women are all of the above with added twists and turns" and the last line. Beautifully done, my beautiful friend. Loved always, bl

    Good one Shadow, when it comes to men we are not all that complicated. This was fun.
