“A woman can be dangerous,” I said.
“What?” My friends asked me.
“Yes. You can tell a lot about a woman, based on what she does.”
“Take her profession, for instance. Accountants are careful—black and white. Teachers are bossy.”
“Andy—that’s a stereotype.”
“Then, there are garbage collectors. They stink.”
“Andy—that’s a man’s job.”
“Now—look who has a stereotype. Why do you think women wear perfume?”
“This line of questioning is getting too crazy for me. Objection.”
And the conversation went on that way, until everyone had a headache.
They wanted to know about my date,
but I wouldn’t tell them anything.
“It’s amazing women will even date you!” She said.
And these are the sentiments I share openly.
The others can’t even be written down.
The ego is a mouse without any muscles
It hides in corners
and it wants to steal the cheese
and if it can’t get what it wants
by being a mouse
it will eat poison
or wander into a mouse-trap.
They were all drinking wine, while eating cheese, and laughing,
while I, the rat, sat, smiling.
I wasn’t drinking, or eating
because I enjoy being sober.
The ego must be hunted,
before it eats too much and drinks too much
and grows to enormous size.
A little ego
because it gets threatened
all the time,
and it can never know enough
or be enough.
It is challenged
because it is so small.
Look at the dictators from the past
and you will see little men
who could never be big enough.
It isn’t their fault,
but who is to blame?
That doesn’t solve
My female friends
give me advice,
but I have been forewarned
not to take their advice
I told them so…
“You’re in a cult, Andy. You need help.”
“There’s no doubt about that,” I said.
My ego is a bomb.
Any tinkering with it
and it might blow up, in my face.
If your ego gets in trouble
you can always print money, with your face on every bill
but the green monster
lines your pockets with useless paper
like leaves, waiting to be burned.

A woman “may” be dangerous. Or she can do the can can. Why? Because it’s dangerous to be a woman. 🧐
