Woman Wants No Equality
Woman and chocolate presented,
Man takes woman first.
Man and chocolate presented,
Woman reaches chocolate first.
In the initiation of sex
Man is more eager than woman.
Each step he takes with some force.
Each step she gets with connivance.
Man loves in working on woman;
Woman loves being worked by man.
Sex has no such equality
As woman aspires openly.
Cleopatra was the queen of Egypt;
Cleopatra was the queen of beauty.
She came to the throne at her eighteen
The first century BC witnessed it.
To get back her Egypt from her brother,
She sought the hand of Julius Caesar,
The mighty one Rome had ever seen,
And set to sell her asset of beauty.
