    THE MAN ACT
    ******************

    Some of you remember
    Ways of days gone by
    Scents of masculinity
    Magic Shave, Old Spice

    Heavy handed father
    Problems... by the bottle
    Measured any other way
    Manhood wasn't honored

    Others knew sweet-daddies
    Leaning in sleek Caddies
    Sex'n up his heart's content
    Always, getting caught

    If yours wasn't shirking
    That man ~
    Was hard-working!

    Putting food on the table...

    Clothes on your back...

    Strong and able...

    With faith intact...

    Love unmeasured...

    Human sacrifice...

    A man doing right...

    Having no vice...

    the ones we seldom hear about...

    If yours wasn't shirking
    That man ~
    Was hard-working!

    Putting food on the table...

    Clothes on your back...

    Being strong and able...

    With his faith intact...

    Showing love unmeasured...

    Human sacrifice...

    A man doing right...

    Having no vice...

    ~~~~~

    such are THE MAN ACTs...that make for the REAL MAN.

    excellent tribute on this THEIR DAY.

    I've seen both kind, but my experience was blessed of the better of the two...A man that was hard-working!

    Great piece.
