I much prefer 
What some call an oaf
To nauseating men
Who preen and primp
And have to show
How machismo they can be
For oafs can have the sweetest centre
Gentleness at their core
Their tender hearts
They share with one and all
Kindness their motto
Their true handsomeness
For all to see
If you truly look
Beneath the exterior

  1. Don't fancy any men at all! However if we look through the facade whether it be male or female hopefully we will find something more that the facade to attract us so you are quite right.

  2. If you truly look
    Beneath the exterior

    Yes, looks can be deceiving! They can be just as adorable!
