WHAT A MESS...

Little boys love football, to run and jump and play.
They are happiest playing at soldiers, or spacemen, all day.
They really aren't too interested in school as a rule...
They'd rather play a prank on friends, or generally act the fool!

Little girls love dollies, playing house and being bossy.
They want everything 'just so' - like in the magazines so glossy!
At school they try to do their best, and try to get ahead of the rest.

Teens brings stubble and zits,
For any boy this is the pits!
They start to 'knuckle down' at school,
Start to spend less time being the clown, or fool!

For girls, teens brings 'the curse', 
What really could be worse?
Carefree days only until the month's end,
Until childbearing days are at an end!

Men still want to be the household lead,
But society's choices make that old fashioned and almost dead.
Frustrated anger boils up inside, they bite their lips to stem the tide,
But... it has nowhere to go and nowhere to hide!

Women try to split themselves in two,
To fit society's view.
Working all the live long day...
Coming home... to slave away!

What a mess the world has made,
Of what God Blessed in Eden's Glade.
Each one was Heaven sent,
Each the other to compliment!

Strengths and weaknesses,
To be shared!
With love and laughter
Not to score points or be compared!
