Art of Manliness, why yes these hands ARE blessed.
This straight edge razor doesn’t handle itself,
It takes talent, it’s apparent, and I’ll leave you impressed.
So don’t stress to me the difference between a child and a man,
Just look at these hands and ask yourself.
These calluses aren’t for enjoyment,
They’re from hard work, the labor of employment.
Days in and days out, as gods plan plays out,
For I might not have a fancy car and I might not have loads of cash,
But these hands are better than a safety deposit stash.
They can build houses; they can break down boxes,
They can move mountains; they can sift through sand,
Don’t talk to me about being a man,
Just look at these hands.
