Men & Women: A Study in Poetry

A social scientist tried to capture the fundamental emotional distance difference between men and women by asking them to write a poem about their perfect mate. These two examples probably illustrate that difference better than any study of the sexes yet completed.

A Woman's Poem

Before I lay me down to sleep, I pray for a man who's not a creep.

One who's handsome, smart and strong. One who loves to listen long.

One who thinks before he speaks. One who'll call, not wait for weeks.

I pray he's gainfully employed; and when I spend won't be annoyed.

Pulls out my chair and opens my door. Rubs my back and wants to do more.

Oh send me a man who loves my mind; not another that worships my behind.

I pray that this man will love me to no end; and always be my bestest friend.

A Man's Poem

I pray for a deaf-mute gymnast nymphomaniac with

great boobs who owns a liquor store next to a golf course.

A chick who loves to send me fishing and drinking.

And doesn't care that my poems don't rhyme.
