Every woman who saw his photo says
  he’s so handsome and a macho,
They fantasized him on bed
  and wished to spend their lives with him;
They were very eager to meet him in person
  and be a part of his life,
They were so proud to be his girlfriend
  and a future wife as well.

What these women never knew
  was the monstrous mask he wears,
He is irresponsible, a manipulator,
   a user and a certified big liar;
Selfish, stingy, sarcastic
   and uses the name of God
   to hide his real motives,
But who’ll believe me,
   he’s so good-looking and very seductive!

He married a comrade in March 1999
  out of depression and necessity,
The poor girl helped him get
  his landed paper to avoid execution;
He even get her impregnated
  because he knew
  marrying her wasn’t enough,
To get humanitarian and compassionate grounds
  from the Immigration.

When that “man in the picture” held
  the permanent resident visa in his hands,
He quickly showed his true colors
  to the wife
  who succored his every need;
In fact, he wanted to abort
  their first and only child ever since,
But his partner was very firm
  in her conviction
  to let the fetus live!

This reality is almost everywhere
  and it’s a mere fact,
Perhaps, you reader will inquire
  how do I know all of these?
Probably, you'll just brand me
  as one with pure imaginative mind,
Well, that “man in the picture”
  was my first and only ex-husband!
