Venus and Mars

by Mark Valentine

Difference between men and women Contest Winner 

I am from Mars while you are from Venus.

You think with your brain, I think with my penis.

You get those hot flashes and won’t turn the heat up.

When I use the bathroom, I oft leave the seat up.

You organize bills and you pay every one.

I can’t find my keys and I once lost our son.

You talk of your feelings - get mad when I won’t

(I’d like to pretend that I care but I don’t).

You’re strict with the kids – I give them more leeway,

And let them go skateboarding out on the freeway.

The movies you watch and the books that you read,

Don’t hold my attention – just aren’t my speed,

And I think I can say (fearing no contradiction),

You’d never watch “Godfather 2” or “Pulp Fiction”.

In spite of these things on which we disagree,

I love you, and you seem to tolerate me.
