Men are Just BOYS

Men are just boys
Someone has said
So, give them a treat
Then tuck them in bed

Give them a toy
When day is done
Sweet goodnight kiss
Let them have fun

Say a kind word
Set them aright
Payback will shine
All through the night

Do set the mood
With words of praise
Seductive look?
Your tool to daze!

Keep hands busy
Gadgets will do
They want to play
With those and you

Just let them feel
Much like a boss
Stroke their ego
When they get cross

Act “submissive”
Be in control
Get a firm grip
On heart and soul

Listen to me!
A man is a boy
With one diff’rence:
Price of the toy

Men get boo boos
Need tender care
Nurse and Mommy
Be always there

Give them sugar
They need a treat
Some good loving
So they stay sweet

Men are simple
This I can say
Play your cards right
Have it YOUR WAY! ;)

    This was charming. That said, "Men" are not simple. Boys are. Men, the right man, has a much more in-depth & substantial representation than that.

    Very humorous, I agree with Marlon though, we are not all so simple although I do have a playful side.
