REAL MAN

We're the throw away

wives

The use em and lose em

brides

---

Like old cars

you trade us in

for new models

After  putting 

one hell of alot of miles 

on us

---

One man's trash

is another's treasure

---

So here I sit

on the Goodwill's shelf

like the Velveteen Rabbit

Waiting for

---

a Real Man...

In days gone by second hand cars would be unscrupulously "clocked" - mileometers put back , and this poem reminds me of the duplicity of men and how they can be ruthless when the old testosterone creates monsters.

Sad yet hopeful. Ray x

Happy new year.

Silence are the men, silence to their thought, of those that have walked, maybe to far from those that are of loving thoughts x
