Men Of Shame

There’s a kind of sickness going round
That makes folk act so cruel.
They live in a sordid little world
Creating all their rules.
Ruling they with iron fist
Power be their thing
Because they have such little minds
And misery they bring.

Their woman have no rights at all
For they be just possessions.
This ugly kind of human being
Has failed he all those lessons
That taught him bout that decency
That gentle men strive for.
Their marriage be such stark disaster
Their minds be filled with war.

And the lady shrivels up so small
As he breeds within her fear.
He’ll raise his fist to cower her
Then say he holds her dear.
She doesn’t know just where to turn
She is caught within his trap
As he rides her like a blasted bronco
And he makes her life like crap.

Now when I meet me folk like him
I look at all his shame
And I don’t care about his childhood
It’s only he to blame.
He takes a Goddess, ties her up
And bends her to his will
Now there’s the type I do dislike
It seems to me they are not real

We should all know this by now and point it out by standing up. "And I don’t care about his childhood It’s only he to blame." "bends her to his will" - such a mean and selfish man. Thanks for reminding us that they are out there.

Hi Caren. Somehow I have always lived in rough districts, so I have come across many of those Cowards. A woman should always be respected they don't deserve to get ill treated. Thank you for your kind comments, my friend. Much appreciated....peter

Unfortunately they are real enough. Powerful write showing up the stark evil of humanity; but there's nothing new under the sun. It's been like this for ages.
