This ones for the gals

What gospels on sunday afternoon
Are four quarters male members tune
With flat screens on wall?
The chair-men want football
And shall yell like a wild baboon


Author's note: This poem was inspired by Lori Hopkin's "This ones for the guys" which is worth a good look.  My apologies to all baboons who are much gentler and finer than I.  Sad to resort to using their species as a stereotype just for the sake of a rhyme.

    LOL, Hilarious! The Sunday worship service of the pig skin. I hope the genus Papio don't take offense.

    Yeah men love sports. I know my step-dad watches Football and he loves to watch the Super Bowl every year and we have a huge TV in our living room and another big TV upstairs in my step-dad's space which is the Loft. Men will be men but the wild baboon part is a bit much dontcha think?

    I put it out there as satire. So, it can be a bit much--yes, depending on your perspective. Your comment is appreciated and considered.
