many years ago
i knew a man
uncomfortable with himself
so he hated every woman
thinking he was a poet
he would put his verses in rhyme
all directed at women
putting them down every time
he villified them…cursed them
he was really an impotent fool
as he spoke the words
every one would see his drool
a woman’s right to her own body
would never be allowed
now that i think of it
he referred to women as “cows”
his actions were horrendous
his words were a shame
i don’t even remember
this chap’s name
his hatred of women
turned him into a troll
heard he lived under a building
in a dark hole
women laughed at his body
and dreaded his face
he was so hateful
he was a disgrace
when he fell from his mother’s womb
she let out a scream
such an ugly little baby
ever to be seen
he was grotesque
it is said that he had little horns
apparently related to the devil
the day he was born
i would go to the Village
to hear some good poetry read
then he would get up
the poet everyone dread
we..the poets..heard his words
and his problem became obvious
he was woman-hating devil
who thought he was marvelous..

Artist's Description

Over the years, I have met many men and women who were so sweet
and kind and then every once in a while there will be either a man or
a woman who is a blight on society…this is about a poet I once knew
in Greenwich Village…his hatred toward women came out in his poetry..
we all thought perhaps he suffered from impotence and that was the
reason for his hate…unfortunately..viagra wasn’t available at the time…

There are men and women who hate the opposite sex…why I don’t know
but it is very sad.
