Do women handle pain better than men do?
And do women handle being sick better too?
My Covid seemed worse than what my wife had.
There must be a woman’s covid that isn’t so bad!
When I had Pancreatitis the pain drove me wild,
I was told, “Pancreatic pain is like having a child."
Maybe God made women to handle more pain.
Therefore, for us to fake it, would be all in vain.
I believe women handle their pain better by far,
Like taking care of us, hurting worse than we are.
So, men take care of and cherish your little lady,
Because we need them and that ain’t no maybe.
