Man Pain VS Woman Pain

By Walt Perryman

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

I can think my way into a good twenty-five,
Iíll probably maintain a nine, while Iím alive.

My wife can go for days at a womanís nine,
When I ask her, how she is? She says, ďfineĒ.

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 Iím no longer macho!
