The Hunk

A gentleman is just a wimp,
and character is boring;
while sensitivity is limp,
as is the poet’s poring.

Give me a man who loves himself,
and his designer outfits;
who will dissipate my wealth,
on ineffectual gadgets.

A man determined to be free,
who treats me like a whore;
clearly does not care for me,
and I’ll come back for more.

Editing stage: 


and interesting theme for writing.
I will be waiting for more.


Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words
........Robert Frost☺

Follow me

as a teenager and through the first half of my twenties. I was always a gentleman and too much of one to pretend otherwise, even to get my leg over. At twenty five I met the woman who became my wife but even she was somewhat older so had probably grown out of that stage.

Sung by some femme fatale.

Guys might sing "That's why the lady, that's why the lady is a tramp"

As to why I think its a good lyric check out the Lyric Vs Poetry forum. .

I'd rather learn from one bird how to sing
than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance
ee cummings

as is the quote from E E Cummings which is rather like saying I would rather have food when I'm hungry than run uphill with a ball and chain.
