Man Pain VS Woman Pain


By Walt Perryman

I believe, man pain, coincides with our age,
If so, I doubt, 1 – 10 is a high enough gauge.

I can think my way into a good twenty-five,
I’ll probably maintain a nine, while I’m alive.

My wife can go for days at a woman’s nine,
When I ask her, how she is? She says, “fine”.

So, if I can think my pain up to around twenty-three!
Do women measure by a different gauge, than me?

My pain level seemed to be lower, many years ago,
But it is higher today because I’m no longer macho!
