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 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.
