116 (who?)

Ladies are suppose to dress

In flattering skirts

And non-revealing shirts.

Wear their makeup so neat,

A ring on their hand,

And heels on their feet.

To have good manners,

And to be polite,

But also to show great might.

Ladies are suppose to think before they speak;

Selecting only the best of words,

So a waste will not leak.

As should they have great wisdom,

And be caring and unique.

Beautiful as a crystal or as an exquisite antique.

Ladies deserve a gentleman,

As opposites do not attract.

One that completes her,

And takes her on the right track.

All women are suppose to be ladies;

To cherish life as they please,

But the select few is decreasing,

And the women who are ladies are soon none to be.
Seeing what women are like today, some women/girls are just outragiously the opposite of what I am trying to say in this poem. Do not get me wrong, there are still quite a few ladies in the world who are beyond the standards, broken the scale, and that is wonderful. I am not trying to give out the impression that I dislike girls/women who are the opposite, I just think it is unruly how the world has changed so much in which even 12 and 13 year olds are having sex and showing much more and saying a lot more than they should and etcetera.

Thank you. Yes. I was like oh this is a cute picture of ladies. And not until I posted the poem did I read what the picture said, I was like oh goodness..... That is horrible...

Using demanding words like should seems to be a problem with most people here in commentaries, and since I know this too well is the reason why I don't bother using words that demand something. These things you speak of is a pipe-dream in this day and time. Anyone who thinks these things today that won't come to fruition is living in a fantasy world. We're in a time where there is no turning back now. These are the was of the old and have diminished as far I'm concerned.

Human nature has not changed over time, only our perception of it. Twenty years ago, fifty years ago - men were still cads and women still wild the world simply did not accept it and so society did its damnedest to hide these actions. I am not a "Lady" by far. I do not wear perfectly ironed and pleated skirts, I do not hold my tongue and bat my lashes and let a "Gentlemen" lead me down the right bath. I had a child at 16 years of age. I have tattoos and piercings and wear the pants. The truth though? I am a Woman, honest, strong, and independent. Today we don't need to tell our girls to be little Ladies, we need to remind them of the Women they want to become.

Your statement opposites attract is invalid. If opposites didn't attract there would be no electricity nor would there be any water ... in fact there would be no you.(excuse my nerdiness)
The poem is written beautifully tho it does seem a bit sexiest

good poem. But I disagree with you.
Ladies are everywhere.
Gentlemen on the other hand...THEY are harder to come by.
Those 12/13 year old girls are having sex with SOMEONE. Y'know?

May I ask, why must a girl be a lady? What makes a girl a lady? Why is this desirable to you? When we think about these things, it becomes sort of hilarious, really. Humans are so funny.
On another note, read some history some time. Sex, drugs, etc, have been around for quite a while. Shall I refer you to the victorian period first?

I digress. I liked the flow of your poem, though somewhat slightly cliche in form. Keep up the good work.
