 There we were, a circle of women

Discussing and cussing men.
It happens like that so easily
We one-up each other very readily.
Talking down the men in our lives,
Whining like a bunch of old fishwives.
Sharing our nasty little tales of woe
About John, Doug, Steve and Joe.
Left up toilet seats and left out dirty socks,
A lack of romance and not enough talks.
Too much sex the younger women exclaim!
Not enough sex the older ones do complain.
He ignores me, he doesn’t care.
He controls me, or he’s never there.
I admit I get caught up in the flow
Sharing my own stories, blow by blow.
But on this particular day I finally heard
Just what I had been saying, each and every word.
You know, I said to all those gathered,
We need to realize what really matters.
We are each not without our own list of flaws
And we need to take a moment to pause -- 
To talk about the good instead of the bad.
There’s surely happy mixed with the sad.
I, for one, love my husband very dearly
He has enriched my life most sincerely.
I love his laughter, his warmth, his touch
The way he gives of himself to others so much.
But more than all this, he is my soul mate and helpmeet
And he would be perfect if he could just lower that damned toilet seat!

I just wanna know: why not look before you sit? You'll never have to worry about whether the seat is up or down. Good write!

One of your best, Ley! Jerry is just such a man as you describe, we started dating in high school, almost 26 years ago now. Funny, the more the length of time we are together, the more we understand each other, though the passion may be less with young children around, our strength's and weaknesses compliment each other and I am grateful to have him in my life and his girls adore him! Maybe I'll try a poem on this...thanks for the inspiration! :)

Bad thing is, that talk about women just as bad. Sad huh? Guess we are all not perfect. (Thank God! or there would be no humor!)

Laughing at Ted's comment. (Just like a man to do something different.)

I really enjoyed reading this...I could just picture this crowd of women standing around man If it weren't for the thorns...where would the flowers be? Wonderful write...and treasure that man of yours! ~ Dee

I always put my toilet seat back down both lids and my wife in her sleep pisses on the cover and then blames me. You can't win so give up and learn to do the wash.
