They say when you die, life flashes before your eyes. Lets make it worth watching


Men should be like Kleenex...soft, strong, disposable
They strut in a room, already giving commands.
Demeaning the woman.
All the good men are either taken or gay.
And we all know about those men,
Who sweet talk their way into your life.
Whispering seductively in your ear.
Making a mess out of your perfect life.
Most men act so tough and strong
on the inside
scared, weak and fragile.
Men are children,
Yet men are unique beasts.
There are a few gentlemen out there,
Ones that belong in Knighthood,
But they are covered up by all the donkeys
By the slimy warthogs.
They use a small ring as a leash.
Yet, some are not bound by it.
Marriage is an institution.
The only legal form of slavery.
And why do women marry these things?
But they can change them,
Train them,
Teach them how to go out in public.
Ladies, let me give you some advice.
Get a dog.

I did this peice for a slam poetry meeting. I'm not gay, but I've always had alot of ranting towards men. I feel as if this is what alot of women think about men.

The ending made me laugh :) I'm a girl and I have  a feeling that the whole 'men are bad thing' is sorta kinda our fault. We shouldn't LET them walk all over us, but sadly most of us do. Still, loved it! Go you! Hope the reading went well for ya!
