A couple of weeks ago, there was quite a discussion on the actKM listserv about the role of alpha males. I had a spare moment and thought I would pen a poem about them. So I came up with a couple of wee limericks…
There is an archetype known as alpha male
Who thinks they are right and never fail
They are literate and use no profanity
While they display precious little vanity
“Tone it Down” say the lurkers – to no avail.
There is an archetype known as alpha males
Who seem to enjoy chasing each other’s tails
Their posts are quite pointed
As if they are ‘The Anointed’
Which makes the rest us – Omega Females?
I’ll post something a bit more serious next!
