MEN ARE HIGH MAINTENANCE

A poem by Fembah
Men are high maintenance
This I know is true
With an ego like a fireplace
that has a log too few

I always stoke the fire
I fan the flames of pride
I stir the ashes of conceit
and from its embers I hide

I nurse that ego fireplace
so its flames will last the night
I keep a steady vigilance
Itís not a pretty sight

The flames hunger for more wood
The wood of my esteem
My own fire fades away
Itís a relationship - not a team!

Before my fire dies on down
I pull myself away
And say, ďMen are high maintenance!
And I donít need one today.Ē
