3WW given words:
lackadaisical makeshift nude

Poets United's prompt:
Energy vitality

Gangway to the dominant male
The individual is a level above
Not just the survival of the fittest
but much much more
It allows access to food and harem
the submissive ones eventually
disappear into oblivion

Energy and vitality level at their zenith
Strength and bravery are not just buzz words
Nothing lackadaisical as a sloth
and not makeshift in attitude
But physically pitting brawn 
over one another
The strongest can then claim victory

The dominant male is still insisting
but now more of a show-off flaunting wealth
good looks or perhaps their deficiencies

Wanting to be in the limelight
Revving a red lamborghini incessantly
in nude efforts of wealth or success

Those with nothing to show
are found at street corners continually
combing their Elvis hairstyle in fake attraction

Even the 'fighter lion syndrome' is still kept alive
with mild forms of territorial markings where
trees mailboxes and lampposts continue 
to be fair game 
'communicating' to other canines 
of their boundary confines
and perhaps sexual availability

Admittedly male ego can never be bruised!

For Thomg's 3WW week #456 and
Susan's PU's Midweek Motif  -  energy vitality


  1. lol when the ego is there, there is always a way. Even with Elvis wannabe hair on display.

  2. Very good portrait of the Platonic type A Male

  3. only the brave deserves the fair :)

  4. Showing off, all the time ... gangway! Interesting perspective. I can't say I don't agree! I guess the vitality comes out in competition and in domination. ha!

  5. Must be the pride / ego that keeps them moving

  6. Love this :D especially the part about "wanting to be in the limelight..revving a red lamborghini incessantly." Excellent write :D

  7. It is indeed a dog eat dog world - i love your take on this Hank
