How to Pick a Real Man.

You can tell my man rocks because our garden has regressed.
The lawn needs a mow, and the bushes look depressed.

You can tell my man rocks because the bins are often full,
the dishes bench is cluttered and the weeds – they need a pull.

You can tell my hubby rocks because the reno’s never done,
the dog is rather smelly, and the ants have too much fun.

You can tell my man rocks because the car is written on,
with fingers in the layers of dust that ought to be long gone.

You can tell my man rocks the minute he gets in the door;
the phone is off, the tie’s undone, he’s down there on the floor

He’s rolling on the carpet with his daughter in his arms,
playing games and telling stories, running her a bath.

You can tell my man rocks; he doesn’t mind if dinner’s late,
the veggies overcooked and pasta rolling off his plate;

he does his part, he washes up, he irons his business shirts;
he doesn’t care if I am wearing jeans instead of skirts

He loves me cause he knows I’m his, and for the job I do
my hubby rocks my world each day; babe, my hat off to you.

Artist's Description

Wrote this for a fathers’ day comp, the brief was ‘My Man Rocks’ and 50 words … unfortunately I went a wee bit over! Hubby liked it, after he recovered from the depression brought on by the To Do list! I’m just a beginner, so constructively criticise away please.
