Reply To The Laddies

by Duncan Jones

Thank you and thank you
That was lovely, quite nice
Now here’s your reply
With some sugar and spice ...

Sticks and stones may break your bones
But words are so much worse
For dareth we to disagree
And you boys look shocked and cursed

Cheers to you Laddies
The strong ones, the men
Who in so many ways
Are still nine ... maybe ten

Open one can of tuna
And you think you’re a chef
And when you drop the ball?
Go ahead, blame the ref

You’re so quick to act tough
Run fast, open doors
Our white knights in armor
And yet so scared of chores

So ... we keep magical wands 
On invisible shelves
And they wave when men sleep ...
And homes clean themselves

Mani-pedi’s? Yes please.
And mimosas times two!
Because maybe, just maybe
We need small breaks from you

See, after so many Hell yeah!’s
Nice bro!’s and High-Five!'s
We find ourselves reading Cosmo ...
Improving our lives

Great deeds by great men
No doubt are easy to find
But if y’all are really so smart
Then tell me ... what’s on my mind?

You have charted our world
And explored distant skies
But with an unhappy queen
The king sure looks unwise

Hashtag sorry, not sorry
Well perhaps I am just a bit
But they say the truth is like poetry
Most people just don’t like it

It doesn’t matter at all
If you’re a king or valet
You’re just not seen as cool
Until we look your way

So take it from me
And do save us a seat
Because we make you look awesome
Even when you can’t hear the beat

Y’all make fun of our interests
Say we make a big fuss
And yet the last time I checked
It’s still you who chase us

Ok, just for the record ...
Remember, I say this in jest
Now once more ... to you Laddies!
Much love, muah, you da best
