Men

Men cannot be weak
For they die
Cannot be strong
For they are bullies
And, certainly,
They cannot cry.
Men must win
Otherwise they are
Losers.
Must be head of the class
Otherwise they are
As good as last.
They must also be
Strong and brave,
Must show the way
And lead
Otherwise they are
Left behind
In the trail of dust.
Must always fight to win
Oh, wow, life ain't fair
But what else is there?
Winner takes all,
Yeah, but in order
For there to be a winner,
Also means tons of people
Must be left in the lurch
In that pile...of losers.
Without them You are not there
You are not at the top
Alone looking at yourself
In the mirror
Indeed, you are naught.
