Vocal Variety



MAXINE ON SATURDAY

VOCAL VARIETY!

Maxine has got this right at least!
Men haven't got a clue!
When it comes to things to talk about
They're not like me and you!
Sport dominates, that's obvious,
And they like some dirty jokes,
And they may embark on politics
When they're with the other blokes.
But that's about the end of it,
Unless, of course, they're old;
In which case there's a litany
About their latest cold!
Whereas we 'gals' are well-aware
Of why vocal cords were formed!
We're bursting with information
And dying to be informed!
Name a subject, and we'll cover it,
Even though it is obscure!
Philosophy? We'll have a go
Even though we're not too sure......
As for Knitting, Remedies and Wine,
Discipline, and the Tropics,
Films, and Books, and Magazines!
There's no end to the topics!
Not only that but we can chat
About ways of getting Thinner,
Even while we're rustling up
A huge calorific dinner!
It started way back in the caves
When the men were hunting game,
And the women and their children
Started giving things a name.
The men came home and grunted
(Which is what they're doing still)
While the women used their voices
As they organised the kill.
We're descended from those ladies
And the scientists have found
That the conversations of females
Really DO make the world go round.

Your rhymes get better every week. I love this weeks and will have to share it with those nine brothers of mine.
