Manly Tears.

Oh! How I love those male tears
finer than a plate of oysters

Japanese samurai warriors cried
during times of epic tragedy

Medieval knights too, shed tears
to show a man lived by chivalry

a code of values that cared enough
to show emotion, if life went awry.

Please don't blame the hay fever
let's see some tears and honesty

Why forbid men such catharsis
why not expose a soft underbelly

come, rest your head on my breast
unburden your tears untill empty.

Tears, a telescope to view heaven.
if your heart burn, be a man. Cry !
