Mythical Man

Tough guys don’t cry

they just tell lies

to hide their emotions

from prying eyes.

It would be unforgivable

for them to appear weak

and were unable to be

the man that they seek

This mythical man

that does not exist

who they believe can solve

any problem with his fist.

When they come

to the end of their days

it will be too late to see

the error of their ways.

As they depart this

mortal coil forthwith

they will realise what

they believed was just a myth.
