Sensitive Log-Splitter’s Lament: A Revolutionary Poem

“I speak in generalizations
about and for all women!”
(An oxymoron
if there ever was one!
Generalization?
Woman?
It can’t be done!)

Still opined another woman;
told me what
a sensitive man
I am.

And then spoke:
“We women want men
who are strong! No joke!”
And I hear it again.

The same idea foisted
on a man changing his world;
the same dogma hoisted,
like a flag being unfurled.

“Women want a sensitive man!”
But what to do
when they find him?
They’ve not a clue.

So I sigh
and ignore the lie.
Learn to be a strong, yet nice, guy.
Learn what I should have learned to be
a decade, or two, or three!
ago.

(I’m slow…
but now I know!
Because dozens of women
have told me so!)

I can split logs in two.
Can you?

    Last two lines, oh so true.
    But then gender issues and placement have been blurred as of late.
    Glad you brought me back down to earth.
    Woman, Make me some dinner !
    (Just kidding. But you know.)
