Just me, explaining myself through Poetry words. Words that have been in my head for years. Now inviting you to read and see what you think?
A Little "Manly" Music For: "Manly" Poetry To The World !
"Men" and "Poetry" Don't Go Together...Do They ?
Men don't need no bunch of stinkin' flowery prose...
To read things like...rhymes... and romantic stuff...that's compared to a rose.
We don't have time for a bunch of quaint nauseating passages...
We got better things to do...like tailgate for the game...and grill Brat Sausages.
We got to snap in 3/8 sockets for us to ratchet...
We got many dead branches lying around for us to hatchet.
We are too busy working around the house...on little things that need attention...
Not for silly sayings...that need portraying...In some "Artsy" book that women mention.
Men want the cold hard facts...with a technical illustration...
We want photos...not frilly, dainty words...left up to the imagination.
Can you handle a 4 barrel carburetor that needs its air mixture adjusted ?
Not if you're busy writing "Poetry"...You're some kind of weirdo...that can't be trusted !
"Manly" Poetry Will Go Forth To All The World...!
And I Am Just The "Man" To Do It !
From the inner thinkings of a man...hath come forth words in the "Manly" Poetry that I render...
And from this day forward...Shall my Poems be re-affirmed "Manly"...Let no one try to hinder.
Forged of sweat...mindful of the Quest that was begun...
Manly Poetry Man set out to bring the World his Poetry...And Do It Just For Fun !
Conqueering misconceptions that Poetry was all flowery...and frilly...and stuffy...
This Man of Poetry...arrived on the stage...uttering his Poems...and did so very toughly !
Few have unleashed...the power of Poetry...out to all men...
Like the one known as "Manly Poetry Man"...has the power to send!
From a land proud...and a man who came from it...
Steps out a "Poet" ..who writes like the "Men of Old" had once long ago...done it.
A Poet among men...who rode into town..."Manly Poetry Man" is what is his name...
He rode into town to say..."Manly" Poetry to the World...That's what he has come to proclaim.
Oh...So You're Too Tough For Poetry...Huh ?
Real Men have brains...they don't need you to say...
That Poetry is just light "Romantic Passages"...Not done in a "Manly" way.
Can Poetry be bold...or Can it tell a wonderful tale...?
Can Poetry weave a plot...better than any story for sale ?
Yes...I say..."Manly" Poetry can do all that...and even rule the day...
Nothing "Girly" about "Manly" words...Set in theme...and "Manly" by what they portray.
Sure...you may have to reset a little of the "sensitive" gear...you have...back into place...
Give me a break...I know things get to us men...I've seen compassion on many a man's face.
That's 'cause...Real Men are in touch with the Human Condition known as "Having a Heart"...
Well...at least some of the time...It can happen to us men...and it ain't 'cause of a brain fart !
Men got something on the inside that is buried down deep for emergencies...and that is pretty cool...
We "Men" don't want to be in the middle of getting the job done...and be weeping like a kid in pre-school.
Go on ahead with your "Bad Self"...Play it cool...Act like you don't read Poetry or care...
I'll Shout Out Anyway: "Manly" Poetry to the World...That's what I'm here to declare!
What is "Manly" Poetry ?
Words came to the Man known as "Manly Poetry Man"...On a Day that was kind'a Dull...
And before he knew it...he couldn't get the Words...Out'ta his Thick Skull.
The Rhymes rang inside his head until he thought..."They Must Serve A Purpose!"
"I'll think of a way for a Man to Write Poems...Without sounding like a Complete Dumfuss!"
And on that day..."Manly Poetry Man"...Wrote down all his thoughts...Using Rhyming Words...
And said to himself, "My poems must not sound like poems from some Gweebicile, Dorky, Nerds !
I must Fight to make them..."Manly" Poems...My Path has now been set which I must pursue...
I Will Bring "Manly" Poetry To The World...Yeah...That's What I'm Going To Do !"
And from that day...until now..."Manly" Poetry has gone forth...
Spreading the News that Poetry can be "Manly"...For All That It's Worth.
"Manly" Poetry with a little history, humor...or tells a story...or expresses an idea...
The Kind of Poetry that makes you think about something...Or makes you go..."Gee, Uh?"
I'm not knocking Poetry with different shades to it...It is not my purpose to discourage...
Only want my "Manly" poems to include men in the audience...That's what I'm trying to encourage.
In Poetry form of thought put down into some prose or rhyme...
Enduring stealth wisdom handed down...through the course of time.
Artistic Ideas stated in clear definition...or perhaps...with their meaning hidden...
Poetry from a Man's heart to the World...that was carefully conceived and written.
Real Men Of Action...Down Through History:
CAPT. JOHN PAUL JONES
USS BONHOMME RICHARD
"The most remarkable single ship duel of the American Revolution was between the Bonne Homme Richard commanded by John Paul Jones and the HMS Serapis. The duel took place on September 23, 1779. The Serapis was a 50 gun ship of the line, that outgunned the Bonne Homme Richard which was barely seaworthy. When the captain of the Serapis hailed the Bonne Homme Richard and demanded surrender, John Paul Jones answered:" Surrender be dammed, I have not yet begun to fight." The Bon Homme Richard went on to vanquish the Serapis." As quoted from the above link.
