Fair to middlin'
His hands are rough and calloused.
He works hard because
thatís just the way a man should do.
His wants and needs are simple.
Heís not one for pretty words.
But if he says he loves you
you know that it is true.
His touch is warm and tender
and means more than he knows.
Feelings of the warm and fuzzy sort
arenít something that he shows.
Pity his poor wife this much
as she is like a cat rubbing at his ankles
purring for a touch,
waiting for a sweet crumb of words
to come falling from his lips.
She loves him with all her heart,
her mind, soul and rounded hips.
She dreams of doing dishes,
and having him hug her from behind
just to nibble on her neck,
as she drinks her morning coffee
while sitting on the flower covered deck.
