Kinda Man

Kinda Man

What do you stand for?
What do you believe?
What cause would you
fight for?

Is there anything for which
you would bleed? Are you content with this new millennial form of slavery? Do you lack bravery?

Do you believe the politians are on a mission to protect your rights, as they say? Or, are they simply articulate, loquacious, corporate mouthpieces? Pimps at play

Wimps at the beck and call of the 2%. Who are no more than educated hustlers using jargon legalese to hoodwink, bamboozle and deceive

What do you stand for? What do you believe? What cause would you fight for? Is there anything for which you would bleed?

Do you lack the
bravery that is needed to
take a stand? Have you capitulated your masculinity?

Has your false belief system depleted and deleted you as a man? Are you an alpha, sigma or a beta version of a man?

Are you a "kinda man" not a real man? Are you an authentic man or just a "kinda man?" Is there any cause for which you would take a stand?

Do you wimp out and become nervous at the mention of combative service? Many things have changed since my generation

When manliness was defined as having courage, patience, honor, truth and justice. A sense of duty and readiness to help the oppressed

The women, widows, orphans, the elderly, disabled and weak. To stand against the tyrants. To protect and assist the humble and meek
