WORLD WITHOUT WOMEN (www)


Have you ever imagine the world we live without women
It is like a lung without some oxygen, agonizing and inevitably dead
A face never with a smile, boring and unfriendly
A cup of tea without some grains of sugar, bitter and foul
A pool without some water, dry and boring
A good ride on a bad untilled road, rough and uninteresting
The earth without some drops of rain, a honeymoon in Sahara desert
But how come with the great number of women on planet earth
We still live to cry as a reggae legend sang “no woman no cry”
It is because they permit evil as much as they permit good
Gullible and instrumental in the hand of the wicked ones
Ugly and nice, beautiful and dangerous
Cunning like a serpent, deceitful like chameleon
Holy but a liar, having a form of godliness but highly ungodly
Lovely like a white puppy, sweet like bees honey
Women control men while the men rule the world

    Well said. Women, the cradle of life, the nurturers of compassion, the loveliest of beings inspire awe. We don't deserve them, but the majority of them deserve our utmost respect. It has been said, 'The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.' This is true, but the women who have gone bad have done so most likely due to mistreatment by men. It is interesting to note that women seem to carry the lion's share of the blame for all that is wrong in the world. One can see this is true by examining female archetypes of literature such as Eve, Lilith, Pandora, Helen of Troy, Medusa, Guenevere, Hecate, Delilah, Morgana, etc. Usually there is also a man who is at least 50 percent responsible for whatever plague or consequence that has manifested itself due to poor choices made. Women always serve as the convenient scapegoats. I think Jimmy Buffet got it right when he said, 'Some people claim that there's a woman to blame, but I know, hell it could be my fault. It's my own damn fault.' (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
