Oh Foolish Man

Oh foolish man,
how dare you interpret your
Manly roar
To a lionesses protection
Oh, foolish man
If only you could see into a
 female's heart, 
How fierce, how noble, how pure,
It's very being, vibrating with love
With hope, and sometimes, yes, with blindness,
Oh, how we suffer,
only to produce another, possible
foolish man into the world
oh, think twice,
Just another day in living
In your own fool's paradise

    The Sweet Gum Tree is beautiful in the fall..The leaves can be yellow or a burgundy or cimson red color..I have never seen one out where it could take shape uncrowded..I have always seen them in a wooded setting..They tend to grow lean and tall in a crowded wooded setting...Sara

    The male of the species can act foolishly sometimes..Some are worse than the others..Also we females do the same sorry to have to say..I enjoyed your work and I had to chuckle at the fact that we bring those foolish males into the world but don't we have high hopes for them..We are just like the ant that has high hopes of moving a RubberTree Plant..Glad that I chose this one to read today..I am glad that you understood my poem..Just for you I may write another using a different end.continued..SK
