Let’s Start This “Manly” Poem Off With A Little “Manly” Music For:

“Manly” Poetry To The World !

“Men” and “Poetry” Don’t Go Together…Do They ?

Men don’t need no bunch of stinkin’ flowery prose…

To read things like…rhymes… and romantic stuff…that’s compared to a rose.

We don’t have time for a bunch of quaint nauseating passages…

We got better things to do…like tailgate for the game…and grill Brat Sausages.

We got to snap in “Craftsman” sockets for us to ratchet…

We got many dead branches lying around for us to hatchet.

We are too busy working around the house…on little things that need attention…

Not for silly sayings…that need portraying…In some “Artsy” book that women mention.

Men want the cold hard facts…with a technical illustration…

We want photos…not frilly, dainty words…left up to the imagination.

Can you handle a 4 barrel carburetor that needs its air mixture adjusted ?

Not if you’re busy writing “Poetry”…You’re some kind of weirdo…that can’t be trusted !

“Manly” Poetry Will Go Forth To All The World…!

"Manly" Poetry To The World !
Arnold Schwarzenegger as “Conan” (This pic from “Conan, the Barbarian”, 1982)

And I Am Just The “Man” To Do It !

From the inner thinking of a man…hath come forth words in the “Manly” Poetry that I render…

And from this day forward…shall my Poems be re-affirmed “Manly”…Let no one try to hinder.

Forged of sweat…mindful of the Quest that was begun…

Manly Poetry Man set out to bring the World his Poetry…and do it just for fun.

Conquering misconceptions that Poetry was all flowery…and frilly…and stuffy…

This Man of Poetry…arrived on the stage…uttering his Poems…and did so very toughly !

Few have unleashed…the power of Poetry…out to all men…

Like the one known as “Manly Poetry Man”…has the power to send.

From a land proud…and a man who came from it…

Steps out a “Poet” ..who writes like the “Men of Old” had once long ago…done it.

A Poet among men…who rode into town…”Manly Poetry Man” is what is his name…

He rode into town to say…”Manly” Poetry to the World…That’s what he has come to proclaim.

"Manly" Poetry To The World !
Clint Eastwood in: “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly” (1968)

Oh…So You’re Too Tough For Poetry…Huh ?

Real Men have brains…they don’t need you to say…

That Poetry is just light “Romantic Passages”…Not done in a “Manly” way.

Can Poetry be bold…or…can it tell a wonderful tale…?

Can Poetry weave a plot…better than any story for sale ?

Yes…I say…”Manly” Poetry can do all that…and even rule the day…

Nothing “Girly” about “Manly” words…set in theme…and “Manly” by what they portray.

Sure…you may have to reset a little of the “sensitive” gear…you have…back into place…

Give me a break…I know things get to us men…I’ve seen compassion on many a man’s face.

That’s ’cause…”Real Men” are in touch with the human condition known as “Having a Heart”…

Well…at least some of the time…It can happen to us men…and it ain’t ’cause of a brain fart !

Men got something on the inside that is buried down deep for emergencies…and that is pretty cool…

We “Men” don’t want to be in the middle of getting the job done…and be weeping like a kid in pre-school.

Go on ahead with your “Bad Self”…play it cool…act like you don’t read Poetry or care…

I’ll shout out anyway: “Manly” Poetry to the World…that’s what I’m here to declare.

"Manly" Poetry To The World !
John Wayne in any of his Classic Westerns: “Rio Lobo”, “Sons of Katie Elder”, “El Dorado”, “The War Wagon”, “The Cowboys”…Etc. 

What is “Manly” Poetry ?

Words came to the man known as “Manly Poetry Man”…on a day that was kind’a dull…

And before he knew it…he couldn’t get the words…”Out’ta his Thick Skull”.

The rhymes rang inside his head until he thought…”They Must Serve A Purpose!”

“I’ll think of a way for a man to write Poems…without sounding like a complete Dumfuss!”

And on that day…”Manly Poetry Man”…wrote down all his thoughts…using rhyming words…

And said to himself, “My poems must not sound like poems from some gweebicile, dorky, Nerds !

I must fight to make them…”Manly” Poems…my path has now been set which I must pursue…

I will bring “Manly” Poetry to the World…Yeah…that’s what I’m going to do !”

And from that day…until now…”Manly” Poetry has gone forth…

Spreading the news that Poetry can be “Manly”…for all that it’s worth.

“Manly” Poetry with a little history, humor…or tells a story…or expresses an ide-a…

The kind of Poetry that makes you think about something…or makes you go…”Gee, Uh?”

I’m not knocking Poetry with different shades to it…it is not my purpose to discourage…

Only want my “Manly” poems to include men in the audience…that’s what I’m trying to encourage.

In Poetry form of thought put down into some prose or rhyme…

Enduring stealth wisdom handed down…through the course of time.

“Artistic Ideas” stated in clear definition…or perhaps…with their meaning hidden…

Poetry from a “Man’s Heart to the World”…that was carefully conceived and written.

Real Men Of Action…Down Through History:


"Manly" Poetry To The World !

Captain John Paul Jones

Commander of the U S S Bonhomme Richard


“The most remarkable single ship duel of the American Revolution was between the Bonne Homme Richard commanded by John Paul Jones and the HMS Serapis. The duel took place on September 23, 1779. The Serapis was a 50 gun ship of the line, that outgunned the Bonne Homme Richard which was barely seaworthy. When the captain of the Serapis hailed the Bonne Homme Richard and demanded surrender, John Paul Jones answered:” Surrender be dammed, I have not yet begun to fight.” The Bon Homme Richard went on to vanquish the Serapis.” As quoted from the above link.

"Manly" Poetry To The World !
“A man must know his destiny. if he does not recognize it, then he is lost. Fate will reach out and tap a man on the shoulder and fate will point out to him what fork in the road he should take, if he has the guts, he will take it.”

He Is Quoted As Saying:

“You’re never beaten until you admit it.”


“If everybody is thinking alike, then somebody isn’t thinking.”


“If I do my full duty, the rest will take care of itself.”

Lieutenant General Lewis Burwell “Chesty” Puller, USMC

"Manly" Poetry To The World !
A Marine’s Marine…In fact Marines still say: “Good night, Chesty…Wherever you are!” He is the most decorated U.S. Marine in History with five Navy Crosses and a Distinguished Service Cross.

He Is Quoted As Saying:

” All Right…They’re on our left…They’re on our right…They’re in front of us…They’re behind us…They can’t get away this time!”


“Alright you bastards, try to shoot me!” (to enemy forces during the Korean War)


“Don’t forget that you’re First Marines! Not all the Communists in hell can overrun you!” (to his men at the Chosin Reservoir)


History is Full of Real Men of Action.


“Real Men” like “Action Movies” with explosions…

"Manly" Poetry To The World !
(2015) · Mad Max: Fury Road: Tom Hardy as “Mad Max”. 

Sending “Manly” Poetry To The World…Because I Say SO !

“Real Men” like “Action Movies” with explosions…or shoot a blast from a Shotgun…

“Real Men”…make things happen…you can count on ’em to…”Git R’ Done” !

Does something need to be tackled…or be destroyed somewhere overnight ?

Just sit back…and let a “Man” do it…”Real Men” get it done right the first time…Alright!

“Real Men” like “Tractors”…and all kinds of “Fishing”…with or without…”Live Bait”…

“Real Men” know when it comes time to Defend…that you don’t do it out of anger or hate.

“Real Men” were meant to “Conquer”…if only their fears…are what’s left in the way…

“Real Men” stand for their “Families”…”Kids” rush to hug their “Dad” at the end of the day.

“Real Men” have a certain “Air” about them…a lot of confidence…and are a little bit brash…

“Real Men” tell ya’ when you step out’ta line…they tell ya’ real quick to “Kiss their _ss!”

So…how could Poetry fit into the thinking…and peculiarities of a “Man”…

Because…it is perfectly capable to do so…and because I say it can…!

Real Men…”Git R’ Done!”

"Manly" Poetry To The World !
“Git R’ Done!” As Quoted By Larry, The Cable Guy.

“Bringing-It” With The “Manly” Poetry !

“Go Big…or…Go Home”…only a “Man” can “Man-Up” in a “Big Way”…

I’m here to give “Manly” Poetry To The World…listen up to what I say!

“Real Men” can bring it with their “A” Game…”Manly” Poetry will do no less…

“Manly” Men start to shine at the times…when others around…start to stress.

“Real Men” back away from something that sounds too “Sissy”…

That’s why “Real Men” don’t read Poetry if it starts sounding too “Prissy”.

They got to have things explained in a language that Men know…

Terminology used must have words that get you “Fired-Up”…you know…”Go, Go, Go!”

No “Willy-Nilly” “Down-Stream” Mediocre Words will fill in…Say it like you mean it…and with conviction…

“Robust and Hearty”, “Heavy Duty”, “High-Performance”…Are “Manly” kind of “Words” that fit…the description.

“Industrial Strength”, “Factory Recommended”, “Good-To-Go”…This Is how “Men” talk…if you’re not a “Fairy”…

“Roger”, “Wingman”, “Man Cave”, “Red Zone”…are key words in every “Man’s Vocabulary”…

We’ve been cutting down things to get right to the point…in “Words”…Forever…

Why say so much in “Words”…if there is a shorter way…that’s just being clever.

And the “Smartest of Us, Men” can write and say “Words”…where vast intelligence is “Unfurled”..

Like the “One” who Is known as “Manly Poetry Man”…”Bringing “Manly” Poetry To The World!”

Real Men…Know How To Go Big…Or Go Home!

“Manly” Poetry To The World ! (And Then Some…)

So…”The Quest” has begun…and “Manly Poetry Man” is only getting started…

“Words of Rhyme”…so “Manly” suited…Poems so unique…they must be carefully guarded.

Poetry Points are left to be made…Heroes that must not ever be forgotten down through Histo-ry…

Also, Entertainment Legends…that have dazzled us…”Great Folks” with a fascinating Biogra-phy.

Even “Humor” added to my poems at times …’Cause that “Manly Poetry Man” is slightly “Koo-ky”…

I will always “Bring-it” with my words…I get so carried away with them…that should be plain to see.

What can a man write of Poetry…as mentioned…What new “Manly” Poems are there left to try ?

Just wait and see what I “Bring to the World”…(Curly would say:) “Nyuk, Nyuk, Nyuk…Wise Guy!”

“Manly” Poetry…summarized in conclusion…is something that just “is”…and will always be better than it was…

“Manly Poetry Man” manages to “Bring-it”…to the World…through the “High-Caliber” of Wording that he does.

So, in review…and not to compound on any of my previous “thus was’s”…or “heretowith’s”…

I am merely a simple Poetry Man…with an eminent inclination…to be among the best “Wordsmiths”.

Now…I have stated my course of action…and the reasons behind the Poetry I send to you…

“Three Cheers” for “Manly Poetry to the World”…That’s all for now, Folks…I guess…I’m finally through…!

“Manly” Poetry is a mix of all things “Manly”… including Humor…!

“Nyuk, Nyuk, Nyuk…Wise Guy!” Curly Howard
