Provocative Question 1 – If I were a man


So, Fandango started a new challenge of thought provoking questions and I think it’s a grand idea. Although I freely admit to being more of a feeler than a thinker, let’s give it a go shall we.

If you could be the opposite sex for one day, what would you do?”

Hmmmm, that’s a puzzler. You see, I’ve always been the feminine equivalent of Professor Higgins. “Why can’t a man be more like a woman?” I do believe in my heart though that with the 60’s and 70’s revolution, both sexes are closer than we’ve ever been to having the freedom to be just who we are.

So, without further ado my 24 hours as a man

If I were a man I would stand straight and tall
I’d breath it in deeply the power of it all.
I’d flex my big biceps and puff out my chest
then I’d slip in some yoga to keep feeling my best.

At work I’d be an admiral commanding my crew
and I’d speak not a word that wasn’t quite true.
My team would be finished far ahead of the rest
and I’d thank them and tell them that they are the best.

I’d grab a burger and fries and a milkshake for lunch
and not have to worry about my thighs a whole bunch.
I’d finish my work but before I left for home
I’d take a few minutes to just be alone.

To pause and reflect on the joy of it all
the sunrise and sunset, red leaves in the fall.

At home I’d hug all my children, my wife and my dog
and then I’d head out on my evening jog.
Then, we’d have dinner and lots of good talk
and I’d wash all the dishes while my wife took a walk.

I’d oversee homework and spend time with each child
then I’d turn on the TV and relax for awhile.
When the chores were all done and the kids all in bed
My wife and I’d talk, or just snuggle instead.

I think that kind of life would simply be grand
not too much would be different, if I were a man.

Till next time ~Peace ~JPP
