The Man

The crowd sees the face

Recognizing the infamous brand

Awe dominates as they stand

As it sweats charisma on command

 

IS that the myth?

No, that's the MAN

 

The crowd sees the body

Scarred and beat like the minority

Its craft is of top priority

Earning foreign respect and consuming authority

 

Is THAT the myth?

No, that's the MAN

The crowd sees the name

As for gender it doesn't pertain

But because of the drive to attain

It's nickname is will maintain

 

Is that THE myth?

No, that's the MAN

 

The crowd sees the crowd

They notice their mainstream fate

An unchallenging life they advocate

Time for a change, it's never too late

 

Is that the MYTH?

No, that's the MAN!
