Minced words lead to unspoken verbs…
Clear dictation of the expressed once forsaken,
felicitous articulation is now my sincere obligation.
Clever phrases were gimmicks meant to amaze her -
Real G’s don smooth veneer,
facile masks more appalling than they appear.
Maternal lessons expose the hood,
chivalry lines the pedigree – patrilineal pride disguises the good.
A real man places focus on his woman,
with sentimental compassion and spirited devotion.
To listen is the emphasis,
admiration the genesis.
Fairness is the good struggle,
not sharpness of the tongue.
Longevity in fidelity,
today I’m the good son.
