Keeping Peace


It’s a bloke’s thing
doesn’t mean it’s
lacking class or if you’re
fixated gorgeous ass
but it’s focussed

believe me 

you cannot live
having failed to see
the sense of a guy’s view
where tragedy collapsed

pronouncing histrionics
properly if you know what 


it means is enough to void
citizenship in a unique
brotherhood of civility

to become a man you had to
learn sensitivity is an enemy
and it thus seems join 


the band of a few
who covertly knew

so I write poetry
if you have time to review
what it means then you too
passed the test and can
keep your own peace
