Toxically Masculine

 

its odd, as a man, to hear

all this talk of our toxicity

as if we were, somehow

wrong

(well, we are

but no worse

than any other)

needed wiping out

needed eradication

needed obliteration

as if we were, somehow

imperfect

(well, we are

but no more

than any other)

yet neither I

nor any man I know

is so toxically masculine

as to cause anothers harm

merely to sate their self-worth

as so many seem to think

we do

(not because I wont see

but because I havent seen

fear

on their childrens faces or

tears

on the face of their wife or a

veneer

paste upon their own face)

 

it is not toxic masculinity

(or militant feminism)

we must fight

it is sin

it crouches to devour

us

and we must master

it
