GOD HELP MEN!  GOD HELP WOMEN!

Men no longer know their role;
they have to strive to have a goal.
'Pumping iron' all the day,
hoping 'babes' will want to play...
Or striving in the field of sport,
hoping this will bring a good report!
Work doesn't take up all the day,
so too many hours they have to play.
Lack of money can be a bore,
yet... to earn it can be a chore!
There's no gender difference now,
unisex is growing - and how!
Where will it all end,
will a test tube be the only place we blend?
God Help men!

Women assuming more and more
of man's role is their chore...
Few actually want to do 
what society would have them do!
Torn in two by the world's demands,
most would rather with men walk hand in hand!
Yet... assertive they must be - 
except at bedtime when they must be playfully free!
Their roles are also becoming blurred;
they try to copy what they've observed.
Becoming predatory... and hard...
drinking ale 'by the yard'...
Groping men as in days of yore...
 in the office... shop... or store!
God Help women!
