For POETS UNITED ~ Midweek Motif ~ A Man's Day ~ Why of Mankind ~

Created in the best of molds
In His own image, human,varied-
strength Herculean, spirit of all
sacrifice extremely  supreme

The Chosen Guide The Taught
by the Pen 'which he knew not'
yet, he stumbled when he saw
and forgot what was cold n raw'

what a piece of work -what kind?
why of mankind', procrastinator
hasty' 'wanting to be King' and
Emperor of the World, soul seller?

Father so loving to banish a daughter
causing wars and a nation's slaughter
blind with sight to marry a queen
traced Tess behind the bush,green?

used his mind to defeat monsters
apply solutions to tricky situations
invented rockets, journeyed to stars
landed on the moon, aiming for Mars

 man the great creation of the universe
responsible for work and for the purse
braving the magic and the curse
rises  with good -pushing back,worse

still man is blamed for all the wars
who can ask 'is man a strange omen?
I may say with All praise to Him
man cannot live without a woman'

  1. As I think you show, for all of man's gifts, achievements and potential, he--or many men--has yet to learn how to treat the women well who aere so necessary to his life. So the blessings and the curse may be God given, but humans have to care for humans. Powerful piece.
