brother, demilitarize my soul

any time i bump into manhood
still drunk with the siege of troy,
i wonder what does it mean to be
a man?

i guess it was easier back then,
before we turned the last frontier
into a car park filled with camper
vans. at least everyone knew their
place in the line. the dictionaries
did not contain bizarre words like
harassment. actually even better,
there were no dictionaries at all.
and best of all, we ruled supreme.
so why bother with such a silly
question?

well, any time i bump into manhood
i quickly sober up since she once asked
if i wonder what does it mean to be
irrelevant?
