I can highly recommend Helen Smith's book "Men On Strike".
I wrote my review of it on Amazon at the permalink below...

In the light of how I live now, and my experience with marriage, I wrote this poem recently:

--- Eleven By Twelve ---

This - my space - 11 x 12

A small world

Minimal

Frugal

Focusing

No lawns to mow here

No space for another

To disdain me

No pets

No useless quasi-pet to bleed me

No man- cave to be relegated to

No couch to sleep better on

Than a bed never mine

Just an almost-square...

I'm living for light

My hope stays bright

I'm almost there

Dream's clearer than ever

Can almost taste it

The salt

Of the biggest blue

Oh, I've been there before

On a different ticket

This time

It's mine

And I require no more

Convincing as to the sacrifice

The cost - I count it daily

What I'm paying to live alive.


Life - I'll share it with you

But never under your roof

Or by your rules.


~ Hard Hat Poet ~
