"Man", a poem in progress

A/N ~ The following poem is inspired by the experiences of one of my friends.

You say you want me to let you be "the man",
but you can't be a man and an X-Box slave,
hiding behind my skirts,
raiding my fridge,
wooing me in rags and tatters,
bringing a lukewarm, limp dick to bed,
scratching your head and
wondering where all the fireworks have gone.

I need a dragon-slayer.

I need a Wu-Tang warrior,
with his suffering and struggles
branded upon his skin and
pierced through his flesh,
his rites of passage etched
up and down his body.

I've been soldier too, you know.
Hit the pavements; check the asphalt.
Check the clinic lines, cubicles, front desks, and conference halls.
Check the classroom and the kitchen, the laundry room
and the yard.
Look high and low, above and upon this world,
and you'll see where my blood has spilled.
