Hello To Feminists - Poem by Bamukunda Hillary

*Hello To Feminists*
.
Standing with life realists
I dare the feminists
To cut short the agenda
Of prescribed equal gender
And swallow the pride pill
Of women status elevation bills
.
Your loud voices have penetrated walls
And your pleas have been honoured overseas
With million countries changing constitutions
All to suit your cause.
Is that equality or sympathy?
.
But tell me,
With various women groups flooding the streets, villages and slums
What has flourished?
You continue to sit home and mother
For a few who work
You continue to refer to yourselves as women
Culturally submissive
Biblically a companion
And to the society fragile
....
