    How could you so insult
    a man so many adore?
    Indeed he is a man,
    but so much more
    if you only knew the half
    of what we know
    You'd be too busy befriending
    him, to make him your foe
    He cares for his fellow man
    and refers to him as brother
    Respects a woman's worth
    knowing we'd be lost without the other
    Cares for his own children
    and the seed of his son
    such a fine example of black
    fatherhood for everyone
    He can magically capture
    with an essence of care
    with a warm caress of love
    able to follow you any where
    beyond infinite miles, further
    than even the mind's eye can see
    His spirit can permeate
    two separate souls into a we
    All woman easily recognizes
    and acknowledges all man
    Others fall to the wayside
    remembered as an also ran
    Best to think before you speak
    gather a speck of wisdom to employ
    It takes a hell of a man to fully
    understand the error of a little boy
    But somehow, I think that he can
    because he certainly is
    that kind of MAN
