    He is what my mama told me a man should be
    He eptomizes the true definition of a powerful black man
    You can see from his gracious walk
    He's been there
    And survived every single knock
    He owns a flashy ride,a tuscan home in the surburbs
    and good heart to his name
    But he doesn't use all these to polish his game
    Nor does he use them as bait

    He's only scratched the surface of his true potential
    yeah...she knows it
    The gal prancing around in the gucci mini skirt
    Her radar didn't miss him at all
    She loves him for what he represents
    Not because he is a kindered soul

    But if as women we cry "liberation!"
    Isn't contradictory
    To lose our power,sell our souls
    For the mere size of a wallet?
    We hide behind the man-bashing and forget...
    We created the monster
    Yes,its true
    A woman got a patent for GOZZILLA

    But wait...
    There's a flip side to this
    It's about him..he in those low-riding jeans
    He has her on a leash
    She is inprinted on his skin..like a bad tattoo that can't be erased
    She is a delicate flower..
    Uncorrupted..and oozes innocence
    Her flawless beauty is her handicap
    coz all she'll ever be to him is a trophy galfriend

    Her earnest prayer is that
    every element that embodies her truth,her wisdom
    switches places with her beauty
    Making dusty earth..the prologue to eternity

    She knows where she's been,knows where she's going
    And how to reach her destination
    Pity,destination in her case equates DAMNATION
    Coz the guys condemned her
    And hung her on the wall as the Mona Lisa

    Yes,it's true..
    A man got a patent for the barbie doll
    And we all know barbie comes with accessories
    So when she sucks you dry my brother
    Don't complain!!

    I love the way you crafted this. When it comes down to it, a person, male or female, is much more than the outer package, or how much is in their bank account. When you seek the wrong things, sometimes you reap what you sew. This was slick!

    Poet, yes, you dropped it here! Some of us don't believe we have to pick one, Heads or Tails. Isn't it a shame. I loved the spin on this. Welcome poet. :wave:
