In a Mans World

In groups they congregate
To quietly and openly segregate
They pick on females to discriminate
And decide on strategies to eliminate

In a mans world
The female specie is viewed as inadequate
Favouritism and sexism persistently operate
In the workplace they give her the squeeze
And unjustly tease her as they please

In a mans world
Think about this and let your thoughts linger
The only females that stand a chance
To be viewed as an individual of importance
Are those who can play Mozart with one finger!
They are role models who are bionic
With prolific skills that are super sonic

In a mans world
Most of their chosen leaders are average
Nothing special just a preferred public image
They the chosen command a higher wage
If their female counterpart does the same
It is an outrage in this machismo egoistic game

Think about this and let your thoughts linger
We rant about equal rights as preaching singers
We rant about unfair play in which we engage
We rant about us reaching a civilised age
However, how many of us within range
Actually try to impose a positive change
To turn around this unfair advantage

Think about this and let your thoughts linger
Why does she usually fight her rights in court?
The mother of all children treated as a stranger
With no support as she faces chauvinistic plots
Why do we always throw a blind eye
And silently watch her in sorrow cry

In a mans world her unchanged destiny
Is furled with little opportunities
She is under constant scrutiny
Faced with closed and open mutiny

So we have the regular aspiring bitches
Inducing pain worse than a running stitch!
In other to become famous and rich!
Which is worse, the macho pigs or the witches?

In a mans world
I have seen exemplary gentlemen but just a few
But I’m sure that information you already knew!
For they know right in their interior
The human female specie is not inferior

So let the truth be uncoiled
Is it or is it not?
Yes! It is a mans world
This is the truth on the spot!

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
