All these withholding American fathers
sending their sons off to battle craving glory and approval
trying to fill an unfillable hole expertly crafted with power tools and homilies
a demonstration of skill as an expression of love
this is a father’s way advice for hugs lessons before laughter.

Such is a man’s world we’d rather die than cry
we fight to reach an understanding
winner takes small comfort when each victory demands validation
in celebration we seek affirmation proof to ourselves
every time that song plays another man is calling the tune.

  1. a man’s world and a woman’s world too.
