Where have the women gone

if the men, follow their women

to book clubs, after 50

to tea parties and bake sales, after 40

to weddings, after 30

to clubs and college, after 20

to shopping malls, after 16

Where have the men gone?

a man can spend years seeking the truth

only to discover

he is seeking, what other men have been seeking

for centuries

and it’s not the truth,

but something dangerous and fun

all of his seeking

and planning

and bold desires

are diverted, by a light touch

melting his heart

to lead men

into the field of battle

Changed, by what he can’t harm

he plows a plot of land

to plant the many pieces

of his soul.
