Man's Remorse

Question not my love, a women will always say

Yet she’ll question yours with each coming day

It’s how we seem to become the respective“exes”

The oh so different worlds of the opposite sexes

 

 

You didn’t buy flowers for the time you raised your voice

Never mind, you drove me crazy, I had so little choice

What!  You can’t be saying that it’s entirely my fault?

Now go out and show me the flowers that you bought

 

 

When a woman is through caring about a man

She takes her love and leaves him in the garbage can

There’s a thousand ways that he looks just like an ass

But the first ten years, she just kinda let that crap pass!

 

 

A man can come home; she’s got that look on her face

Get a little frisky; she says ‘we’re not in a good place’

Well what the hell! What could that possibly mean?

The bedroom the place we normally make the scene

 

 

She says you’ve changed; become a complete jackass

Well, maybe so, but since when does she get a pass?

Raised by your mama to act just like a stupid jerk

There to remind you on your return home from work

 

 

So what is it I can do that will change the way you feel?

Oh don’t bother; I’m pretty sure you’re a permanent heel

A man can’t get any help when he really wants to rate

But a woman, she can point it out both at early and at late

 

 

Why can’t you explain what it is that you’ve just done?

Gosh Darn, Babe! I was just out there havin’ a bit of fun!

Yeah! Just out there a whoopin’ it up in the bars

The women may be from Venus; us men we’re from Mars!

 

 

So a man can only pray when the walls come tumbling in

That she will feel better tomorrow and forget his little sin

She’ll give him a wink, a peck on the cheek; maybe a smile

And that dumb-ass will follow her for more than a little while

 

 

A man ain’t got a chance when he argues with the fairer sex

She’ll ignore your words and all your logic she will wreck

So take a little bit of advise, just keep your mouth tightly shut

Let her talk, say “yes darling” and sit there on your butt.

Wayne,

Your verse put Einstein's words to work!!!!!!!!!!

“Women marry men hoping they will change. Men marry women hoping they will not. So each is inevitably disappointed.”

Albert Einstein quotes (German born American Physicist who developed the special and general theories of relativity. Nobel Prize for Physics in 1921. 1879-1955)

@Tom Whitworth...By golly, Tom that's most intellectual insight I have heard by a man quoting a man on a man...That Einstein knew his stuff! Thanks for the read and the good words. WB

Wayne the poem is very funny and you are quite witty and wise. I loved the video from hee haw. My dad used to love that show and make us sit through it and then I realized I liked it. lol. You have the characteristics between women and men down to a science here. Cheers.

@ladyjane1...Thanks LJ...my bride must take credit for giving me the inspiration in part for this one! She'd love that! LOL! But you are right, it comes down to the scientific difference between the sexes. Thanks for the read and the good comments! WB

Hi Wayne...Great poem full of wisdom and sound advise for any man...

I'm always baffled how a 6'4" man can be cowed by a 5'5" woman...They get that look and man, you better find something to do outside real quick...Larry

Now hold on one minute here - what look is that? I don't use 'a look' - I don't have to use a look! I have several other tools in MY tool belt and I don't feel bad using them to tell the truth.

Seriously, it is funny how we all get along - and don't get along at times and you nailed that well. I have learned that men are a different kind of animal altogether but then again, so are women and the sooner we just agree to disagree, we're all the happier for it!

Raising 2 boys AND Bob (ha ha) I have discovered one very important thing though - while women think a different way than men, it all boils down to a sense of humor. Roll with the punches and get up the next day and start over. Bob's been in the dog house a couple of times. I figure he did it to himself and no use making a national holiday over it - besides - it just gives me more 'tools' if I let him off the hook and then I screw up down the way a bit! It's all about the give and take!

Cute videos!

@akirchner...unfortunately, there are those who take who can't remember to give and therein lies the problem. Thanks the great comments Audrey! WB

Great advice. I apply the silence technique often, but then I get flak for that too, haha. Funny poem.

Wayne Brown 6 years ago from Texas Author

@jambo87....I too have failed miserably at that technique. Nothing much works on a woman, they know our tricks! LOL! Thanks for the read and the comment! WB

My comment is: I refer all comments on the subject to my attorney, lol.

@lalesu....Why am I not surprised! Did your lawyer tell you to say that or take the Fifth? LOL! WB

Wayne my lips are sealed. My ex summed it all up very nicely with her last words.

" I always have the last word and I am always right"

Her lawyer and the judge agreed with her and that took me out of the doghouse and into the poor house. Woof, Woof. tail between legs:0

Some fun and wry grin here Wayne - I was once told the best words for a marriage are nodding your had and 'yes dear' regardless :)

@billyaustindillon...Lot's of fun but too much truth also. I tend to live by the guide of the last line! Thanks for the read Billy! WB

I'm with Audrey on this one - we may be different but as long as things are solid in the foundation, who cares if a few knick knacks smash now and then? A sense of humor is everything! My only regret is that men don't have one. LOL. (Sorry - I could not stop my fingers from typing that)

@SilverGenes...you had to get that one last dig in huh? Ah, the ways of a woman
