    A real Man does what he says
    His word is his bond
    And he lives by a “Do Right” creed
    As he matches word to deed.

    A real Man won’t use another
    To throw darts of poisoned spite
    A real Man won’t send in a decoy
    To take his place
    In his own instigated fight

    A real Man won’t hide behind doors
    Peeking out only to check the scores
    On childish “T!t for Tat”
    A real Man won’t cry “Foul!”
    When he swings & strikes out at bat

    Now, if you can’t tell the difference
    Here’s a clue to aid your view….

    For any action he may undertake
    He has to practice and rehearse
    For he's always a fake and a coward
    Who shouts the loudest in
    His "I'm a REAL MAN" empty verse...

    Now, my mother often taught:
    That it’s a sure mark
    Of a sorry excuse of a man
    Who'll throw a rock
    And then, hide his hand!

    On this, my friend
    You can surely bet
    For, I've never seen this lesson
    Fail me yet.
