This is only my second attempt at poetry so please bear with me...Dedicated to some men in my life that are going through some rough spots right now

'You just watch me' the arrogant man said with pride

Looking down his nose to judge me unworthy

I am but a humble man just trying to do the best that I can

I only ask to be judged by the same measuring stick that you use for yourself instead of a toothpick

I have been told my entire life, 'Don't do as I do, do as I say'

'You just watch me', but what I see is hypocrisy

Now that I am a man, I have learned thru life's hard knocks that it is not wise to watch imperfect man

So I try to follow our example of a perfect man...

A humble carpenter that taught us how to love
and rebuked those arrogant Pharisee's for their hypocrisy

I'd rather watch God's son

I'd say this is pretty darn good, for not writing so many poems.
Nice, punchy 'last line,' too!!!
