Roughneck

You marketing types love us. Blue all over, fear of nothing a man can throw, Quick to bow down when the boss come by... not the one paying me...., but the one who rules my roost. Day breaks looks nice, especially because the roads aren't covered and filled with the yuppie douche bag lawyers, bankers and brokers all on phones missing the opening of the days first gift. you know these soft handed men! Your commercials applaud our ethic, our muscles, our attitudes, our jacked up 4 X 4 Our dick swinging genuflection to manhood's blue collar ways. Toughness is forged by the cold weather winds, Sun baked and burned backs, Red tipped noses from over drinking the days end the night before while being educated at H.K.U. Not Hong Kong University...its Hard-Knock University We learned in fields where sweat meets will 'cuz you cant fail. Blood and callused hands complete the job, the well, the pipeline, the boat, the building, Grown in fields of corn, on oil rigs surrounded by the deepest blue oceans, as blue as the collar around the neck. tight, knowing there is nowhere else to go and nowhere you would rather be. Women feel the attraction, and we see it in your eyes... Awakening the primal sense in you. The roughnecks and dirt covered crew. You know your manicured husband just don't have this....or could do that! You may want a well put together, prepared and pampered over, buffed and polished man, but your desire fixates on men in blue who can do it all, from fixes of the sink, to kissing you tender pillow top lip, Big and small, blue collard boys do it all!
