Men are from Venus,
women from Mars,
Or maybe vice versa,
both planets, not stars.

I'd always thought,
I'd been brought by a stork,
I read this here book,
Now I feel like a dork.

I told my dear wife,
was feeling confused,
Called her a Martian,
she wasn't amused.

She said my dear husband,
you don't come from Venus,
If I had a guess,
you come from Uranus.

Cute.  

 Nothing can deter a poet, for he is actuated by pure love. Who can predict his comings and goings? "Thoreau"

LOL  

thanks for the laugh, "you come from Uranus".
I am sure your wife meant it in the nicest way possible.

I am a relic I am just a petrified cry Wheeled out once a year, a cenotaph souvenir
The applause nails down my silence
La tristesse durera
Scream to a sigh, to a sigh
I see liberals I am just a fashion accessory
People send postcards
And they all hope I'm feeling well I retreat into self-pity, it's so easy Where they patronise my misery
La tristesse durera
Scream to a sigh, to a sigh
I sold my medal
It paid a bill
It sells at market stalls Parades Milan catwalks
The sadness will never go Will never go away
Baby it's here to stay

I am aghast.  I endeavor to postulate on the sociological interactions of the male/female dichotomy of the humanoid species, and you people take humor in my philosophical self-introspections.  To top it all off, I related Balladeer's comment to Connie and her reply, "so I am not the only one who recognized you are a pain in the asp."
btw...  thanks for the comments, glad you enjoyed.

WAY TOO FUNNY...
very clever and witty...


I saw this poem once written in reference to
that book...
I hope I can remember it correctly...
a friend told me it even was read by the author of this book when he was a guest on Oprah >>>
I thought you would enjoy seeing...
it was also written by a man...


Men are from Mars???
Women are from Venus???
or is it the other way around???
who wrote this was either and idiot or a genius.

My wife is always mad at me
I seem to never get it right
I try to understand women
I even tape Oprah and watch it at night.

Im starting to think I'm getting in her hair
The other day she told me...
IF they can put a man on the moon ...
WHY CANT THEY PUT THEM ALL THERE!!!!!

So I bought this stupid book...
hoping that her-- it would impress
but it didnt work
as you might guess
She said you should have bought me flowers
instead of that silly book
I could have expired--
from her deadly look

In my defense I said honey--
its a national best seller
he knows all the answers
I tried my best to tell her

But my words fell on deaf ears
as I went on to explain
finally defeated I just shut up
my words were all in vain

She looked at me but took no pity
and said So Women are from Mars, Men from Venus
I didn't need a book to tell me
I already knew you men think and lead with your *****  

Then she smiled and said
OK honey I give you credit--at least you tried
I'll reward you loving efforts
lets go upstairs and let our planets collide
