A Good Man (a poem)
Where have all the good men gone;
Spread out in other places instead of
where the belong.
Some have caught early deaths.
Others to leave our women
to fend for themselves.
And I know like you know
that ain't how it's supposed to be.
I'm a King and my Queen
should be close to me.
Insead, it's her intuition and
independence she depends on,
her and her girls,
'cause the good men have gone.
So as men we wonder why our
females are so bitter;
maybe cause she wants a go-getter,
a man she can trust that's
not a quitter.
Giving her all the things
she grew up believing in --
commitment, trust, loyalty and decisiveness.
Just a few of the qualities of leading men.
So as a man, we must stop giving
our time to the streets, drugs, and cells.
Get back to being what's good
for our females.
Change our thought pattern and views.
If not, we we'll never win
but always lose.
After all who doesn't want a partner
they can love, depend on and trust?
It's about men being men and
women being able to depend on us.
