MAN & ‘WOO’MAN

 

Eyes pierce;

words penetrate;

countenance corrodes…

pity those tough hearts

of rough masculinity

genuflecting

tender muliebrity.

 

Just think of poor God

…He dares once in a while

out of Maya-muffle

to eavesdrop His devotees’ troubles.

 

 

Got encapsulated in Her

enchanting shell, spell

…the God became a helpless manikin

caught within Her tall

woo-prison walls.

 

What to say

of frail mortal man;

truly gullible

to sirens’ smirks,

swings, snits and whiffs!

 

O’ man, O’ man…always gets tangled, wangled

and ‘woman’gled

like a fish in an angler’s net.

    “O’ man, O’ man…always gets tangled, wangled
    and ‘woman’gled
    like a fish in an angler’s net.”
    Yet we men say we are superior
    though most are mostly easily enticed nuts 🙂

    Anuradha,
    man and woeman 🙂
    Don’t mention nets to an angler!
    …yet it is true that we all sometimes get man’gled or woman’gled in the lines that we are lured to weave. (plenty of fishing puns in there),
