Man Bashing Day

I wish I could say I am proud of men
I wish I could say it's true
I wish I could say I am proud of men
But a kick in their pants would do
 
They have no clue about what they should say
They only know how to grunt
They have no clue about what they should say
These cave men just want to hunt
 
I wish I could say I admire men
I wish I could say they’re cool
I wish I could say I admire men
But why must they play the fool?
 
“Oh for goodness sake, won’t you get a grip?
Your feelings can make you strong
Oh for goodness sake, won’t you get a grip?
It's ok if you are wrong!”
 
They think if you smile, they must be divine
They think they can make you swoon
They think if you smile, they must be divine
Yet they dance to our sweet tune!
 
They think we must yield to their every whim
We must cook, clean, and be coy
They think we must yield to their every whim
We’re to be used as a toy!
 
They think they were made to govern and rule
They have the right to command
They think they were made to govern and rule
Their foolishness who can stand?
 
It's men bashing day; I’m compelled to say
A good man is hard to find
It's men bashing day, I’m compelled to say…
Ladies, thank God for OUR kind! 
 
We are sugar and spice and all things nice
We’re just like peaches and cream
We are sugar and spice and all things nice
Each one is every man’s dream!!!

    Hi Eileen, they say behind every great man there is a woman, even the not so great, just us normal joes. I really enjoyed this read. You have us men down to a tee. Mind you, some of us know we aren't much without a good lady by our side, to give us a gentle push in the right direction sometimes. I think the saying is slightly wrong though. Every man needs a woman beside him, that would be more precise. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    Thanks for reading my older writes, Mike. Very kind of you. Yes, I was going overboard on this one to have a little fun. Good men know that they should give woman equal footing. :) Thanks for stopping by

    Us poor men we don't have a chance. This one made me laugh, it's a lot of fun!
