IT'S HARDER FOR MEN
|This poem is about internet dating on a website called 'Plenty of Fish'©. I don't know how familiar you guys & gals are on the goings on of these dating websites but the more you do it, the more you will get this poem.
Hope you enjoy it - Graffiti Poet
It's harder for a man to get, a girlfriend here on POF©
they have a massive shopping list
of stuff that puts them off.
He must have this, he must have that, he must be ten foot tall
and lots of other silly stuff
that matters not at all.
For us to get to chat them up, we have to join a queue
but only when we've made them laugh
no simple “Hi” will do.
They say we have to write to them, a message oh so long
about their love of shopping
with not a word spelled wrong.
They wonder why we show them fish, they say it puts them off
thinking of the grime and slime
on clothes they'll have to wash.
It's only on the internet things sadly go awry
because the girls have taken charge
not left it to the guy.
Out in the world that doesn't come, from logging on and off
the only thing we need in there
are hats and caps to doff.
We only have to tell a girl, she's looking very cute
then suddenly our attributes
she finds a perfect suit.
I think it isn't very wise, to let them pick and choose
just look at what a fuss they make
of shopping for their shoes.
It may be best from here on in, we switch it all about
let girls write all the messages
and ask the fellas out.
Or just go back to how it was, to all the ways of old
when women were much happier
and did as they were told.
The world was such a better place, more love got shared about
when all we did was ask her Dad
to take his daughter out.
I think I'm going to write to POF©, to tell them what I think
the chances for the men in here
completely bloody stink.
We only want a pretty girl, someone to call “My Dear”
to cook us Sunday dinner
and fetch a bloomin' beer.
