Click here to hear the poet read his words:
women are crazy
a wise man once told me
that all women are crazy
and when I raised an eyebrow
he shrugged and said
a friend says
that ladies are different
from us mere men
and when I reply
vive la différence
he grins and says
now I’m not smart enough
or even both
of these statements
but I had a mother
and a wife
I have a daughter
and the occasional romantic attachment
so I have loved
a few of the fairer sex
but never yet met one
Perhaps then love is just our imagined understanding of each other. This made me smile. Nice wee meander of thoughts.
Or maybe our imagined misunderstanding, Lindsey?
I do enjoy a wee meander on occasion…
…and it all goes to prove what women say about men:
‘They’re different, they just don’t get it.’
‘We need to make allowances for them.’
Your delightfully bewildered poem made me smile.
We don’t get nuffin, Jenne, confused is my default state.
