Reversal of Marital Roles,  American-gothic -flipped, original by Grant Wood, 1930

I do not want you to think badly of me
for surrendering myself to you so soon
I was only doing what felt natural and true
please do not feel that I am easy

It is challenging to be a man in these times
so much of what was once so clear cut
has been turned on its head –
at least in the pastures I graze

Do we need governmental protection?
no, at least not yet
but there may come a time
when the unfairer sex will seek to be saved

from quite what I am not sure
that said, there are huge shadows over our doings
that are perplexing to say the least –
and which may require executive action
