|Very evokative...although when I first read this, I thought it was speaking of a male, it could easily be about a female as well. There is a lot of gender overlap these days. Jesus wept at Lazarus' death and He was a perfect specimen of ideal masculinity, yet He compared His weeping over Jerusalem's rejection as like a hen wanting to gather her chicks. Very moving, thought-provoking write. -Zach|

|Why didn't I see this piece before?
This is so good Jeanne, so precise.
Those last lines couldn't be more effective
at the end of such a painfully true depiction
of "male insanity".

Best line that I've read in a while jeannerene'. Humanity certainly is multi-faceted, especially in the way it expresses itself when disgruntled and out of sorts. Your poem seethes with emotion, and effectively paints a moment that everyone can relate too.

|Jeanne René Watson,
Amazing pen my friend. I wonder just how many men could suck it up and be a woman. It takes a sensitive and beautiful person to be one. Just think, that macho exterior may only be a cover-up. Peace, Love and Blessings Always, Paul.

|I have to say I agree with Karla...WOW! Powerful writing. "frustrations dribbling down your chin," my favorite line.

|Reminds me strongly of an incident with my nephew-- he was bawling because his sister got to "do everything, 'cause she's a girl... and I don't get to do anything, 'cause I'm a boy!" to which his dad put his hand on my nephew's shoulder and said, "Buck up, Boy. At least you're a boob!"
They may give us a hard time, but a good tearing-up is healthy for you. --Charlie
