Wake up, women..


Are you one of the four wives,
Visited by your husband every four days,
Wake up, woman, fight for your rights,
You don’t have to wait for a womanizer to arrive,
Always tired of doing extra work in all four houses,
Look at his face, the pressure is building up,
Look at his legs; those are getting wobbly in mid forties,
Wake up women, your sons don’t have to face the early death,
Gulping pills and potions to carry the burden,
On his sparrow sized brain that goes to dysfunction soon.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
