"Real Men Don't Read Poems"
Manly Poetry Man
There is a way for a man to put down what he wants to say,
And that comes in the form of writings called: "Poet-tray".
I know what you're thinking...I sense...You think I'm a po-ser,
Saying: “If he likes Poems...that must mean...He's a total lo-ser”
So listen to me…and "Man Up...You Stinkin’ Maggot” !
Reading Poems...Doesn’t Mean You're A " ____ - __ ". (*)
I know you're thinking poems are all flowery and fluffy.
Full of light romantic passages...all frilly and stuffy.
But...with some Stealth they can be sharp and kind of witty,
They can be tough and get right down to the “Nitty-Gritty”.
Words come from the hand that wields them...
A Man is forged by the World around Him.
Words...come at you every day...
Poems...are just more organized by what they say !
So...Listen to me…My Brother,
It’s time for you to step away from the Apron Strings of your Mother.
Stop all the thinking out there…That Poems are for “Wuzzies”,
I’ve seen a bunch of you “Poem-haters” and you’re just a bunch of …...
Stand up...and take the Poems like a Man,
No one can "Whip-out" the Manly Poetry like I can.
You think you got what it takes…Well...We’ll just see,
Many have tried...But Only A Few Have Strength to Read...Such "Poe-try' ".
I can do the “Love-thing” or elaborate upon the Sad...and Gloomy,
I can paint Scenic Pictures or Portray the News...real “Doom-ly' ”.
Don’t Worry…I know this may appear to be con-tro-ver-sial….
And this boldness may rock your world…‘Cause You’re Special.
But the truth is…you might just be a Little Afraid of “Poem Power”...
Now is the Time…Give me a few minutes...Not even an Hour,
And I will give you some remarkable Poe-try...
You can Thank Me later…But it’s not all about me.
A Simple Talent from Above...Just like any talent that's been given to you,
And for many years I set it aside…Not knowing what I could do.
So…I sat awhile at a computer screen…Weary...
And worried what people might think of my poems…I was Leery.
But, my Forecast has changed now from being Dreary…
People from Far and Wide can now see my work...Clearly !
And So with No Further Ado…I must say...
You’re reading some of the Best Poems that are out there today.
It's not that easy to do this and make it this: GREAT,
So forget about all your moaning, complaining, whining, and HATE.
(C'mon...That was one of those lines...where if you take the BAIT...
You almost had to know I would use that Word to Rhyme with GREAT !?)
“Real Men Don’t Read Poems”…So, that is what you’re thinking ?
You ain’t seen nothing yet…Watch me "Whip-out" a Poem...Without even Blinking !
(*) Ha...Made You Rhyme!

Be it Known: If you look closely in the above poem...you might see a line or two inspired by "The Raven", by Edgar Allen Poe, a reference to R. Lee Ermey (Famous Marine Drill Sergeant from "Full Metal Jacket") , a reference to many of my other Poem lines on Hubpages.com, a few old clichés including: "Real Men Don't Eat Quiche", and a close resemblance to Manly Poetry Man's favorite quote in regards to Poetry: "Words come at you everyday; Poems are just a little more organized in what they have to say!"
(Not bad for a simple "Manly" Poem...even if I do say so myself...Ha!)
