A real male doesn’t ring the bell a second time,

If she really wanted him, it would be sublime,

When she didn’t answer I departed quite sad,

I never thought our love would go bad,

They said that it was a victimless crime!


Men don’t wear skinny jeans,

Men don’t own figurines,

We are aggressive by all means,

It started in our early teens,

We think you are all queens,

It is imbedded in our genes.


A real male doesn’t ring the bell a second time,

Upon no answer, he thought it a crime,

He did not cry nor did he weep,

However he anguished in his sleep,

He felt diminished in his prime.


Men don’t wear makeup,

For young ladies to shake up,

They would rather wake up,

In their arms and make up,

And immediately take up,

From last night, not break up.


A real male doesn’t ring the bell a second time,

He considers it a capitulating war crime,

He walks away with head held high,

He knows that this love will go awry,

He keeps his anguish as an internal rhyme.


Men don’t eat quiche,

Nor are kept on a leash,

Or commit pastiche,

They find their own niche,

Extending their reach,

With never a screech.


A real male rings the bell only once,

For that he may be called a dunce,

He has his pride and ego too,

He knows that love has gone askew,

She treats him with ambivalence.


Men are not steel bolts,

But sometimes dolts,

Like wild young colts,

With excessive volts,

Then their ego molts,

Before she bolts.


A real male rings the bell; sometimes twice,

And in desperation, sometimes thrice,

Love has no ego, only desire,

And if the situation is really dire,

He then realizes that he must be nice,

      I bought a large parcel of property in Greene. Over the years I became interested in who settled the land. There were old quarries, home foundations, the remnants of the canal and a switchback road that climbed up the mountainside. Once I started looking into who the initial settler was I became hooked. The Birdsall story is a very interesting one. It took courage and a lot of hard work to settle this piece of land. I admired Henry and his family for what they did to survive and clear the farmland. Then there was the interesting story of Abram Storms who hauled two millstones from Cocksackie to Brisbane in Chenango County. Henry must have admired him because Abram Storms and his wife Eve are both buried in the Birdsall Family Cemetery that lies between County Route 32 and the River. There is one more family story that is also interesting. That of Juilliame de Besse (William/John Bessac) who came from a well to do French Family (who lost their position during the French Revolution), studied medicine in Cadiz, Spain and then went into the shipping business during the American Revolution. Pirates caused him to abandon shipping and he then settled near Henry Birdsall to enjoy fishing and hunting. Oh yes, Bessac also tried his hand at fur trading in northern NY and Canada. So that’s the story, I just kept researching the area around Henry’s compound because I couldn’t stop discovering all these amazing facts.
