Poor Boys

Asking for help
is never an option
if you’re a mans
man

Asking for help
is always forgotten
if you’re a man
with a plan

Why would you ever
ask for help
when you know
you can do it
better yourself

Asking for help
is something to fear
people think you’re
a pussy and that’s
something to fear

If you’re a woman
or girl give it a twirl
there’ll be a man
who will come
and fix up your world

But if you’re a man
or a boy you figure it out
you don’t stop for a minute
to let out a shout
you keep your head down
and heart closed
and you pound away
anger and anger and anger
all day
and you process
and dress up
and diplomacize words
to make sure
you’re the best in the herd
and to make sure
you’re the one who is heard

Whatever you do
you don’t ask for help
you man up and instead
just kill yourself.

Poor boys.
