men that do

she was looking for a man that did

as her ex didn’t do anything

she said

& I was in the frame for a while

as I did motorcycles

had a workshop building choppers

servicing bikes kind of thing

the problem was

the govt wanted money

as did the landlord

& they had a far more serious attitude

about all of the folding than I did

so she caught me at the end

of all of that doing things

& when it crashed & burned

I needed space lick my wounds

rethink the world for a little while

work out how to start over

which did not suit her at all

unkind words were said

as she showed me the door

in her project house paid by the state

providing a roof for her & her child

while she lived on welfare

decided how the world

& men should be
