What A Woman Is Not... - Poem by ifedayo oshin

She is a woman
Cool calm and collected;
If placidly, she tugs and lags
Like a sheep behind every successful shepherd

She is a woman
Sweet, simple and soft
If she has a voice –low and faint
Like a maid in the midst of masters

She is a woman
Blonde, big busted and beautiful
If she lays the bed and her body
Like a mother –cow in the hands of a milkmaid

She is a woman
Educated, enlightened and enthroned
If it’s all practiced in the kitchen
Like an eagle flying in a cage.
