What Annoys Me

What annoys me to the core Is a man to his word untrue For honor is tied to manhood It does annoy me, how ‘bout you? They emasculate themselves With the lies that they dare tell And it makes me want to wish That they’d sizzle away in hell Annoyed? WOW! Annoyed for sure And wanting to give them thumps When they say, “I understand” Then go and act like chumps A MAN is one who says one thing And doesn’t do another Who lives by the words he says As a lover, friend, or brother The glory days of chivalry When for your honor you’d die Have gone away and now remains The honorless fool with a lie I’m annoyed and I’m incensed By MEN who claim to be Honest and trustworthy... Stay the hell away from me! June 10, 2013 For Contest Entry- What Annoys You By Frank H

Wow, you do sound annoyed. I try not to be that guy but if I am honest there are times I have played the chump.

Honesty is the best policy! This was just a rant, Richard...I was just enjoying getting my evil twin out for a day in the sun! ;) Chumps will be given sugar lumps if they repent! ;)

You certainly got it off your chest in this write lol, no one is immune to type of person. BTW, I write English-English, 'Quite', means, totally, utterly, completely, truly, not sure what you think it means, hmmmmm back at you lol. Take care, Richard

Oh boy, I have certainly felt this way before... Your anger is a tangible thing in this poem! Great job, lady! (Unfortunately, I do know some women like this too...)

Yes, there are some women like this too! That's certain! Thanks for stopping by, Heather! Would love to visit your work, but I've got to defend my proposal this afternoon and I'm just having a mini break! Hugs!

Oh, and to your question...yes, twice in a period of 7 years doing what I do I've had a piece of slag burn through my pants while sitting down and welding(small one--size of a pinky nail) and bounce around down there...ha...no real damage done though. I do a lot of welding here in hard to reach areas. I have quite a few scars on my hands and arms from it...none in the nether-regions though..hahahaha. I just have one of those jobs where small injuries(and sometimes big ones) are part of it.

I'm so so sorry to know that! OUCCHHHHHH! Glad you are damage free, my dear. Strong man! Do take care, though, ya hear?

Yikes!...haha. Seriously though, you're right. So many men these days are sorry excuses for what they should be. Lack of integrity, lack of honor, an abundance of lies.....so sad....but not all of them...;)
