Take It Like A Man

I wrote this in November 1979 when I was teaching English Composition and Literature to adults at Manna Bible Institute in Philadelphia. This was written to a particular student who whined about his work. Not sure it was delivered, though. 🙂

Take It Like A Man

By Sharon L. Bratcher


You didn’t meet your assignment.

You say that I don’t understand.

But there are standards to be kept.

Don’t complain, take it like a man.

You promised me three late papers.

Three deadlines passed – now you can

Take the appropriate judgement.

Don’t complain–take it like a man.

I care about you and love you.

Without standards, you would not gain.

Fulfill your responsibilities!

Take it like a man – do not complain!

[Phil. 2:14 – “[Do all things without murmurings and disputings.”]
