Inequality - Poem by LISY KURIAKOSE
Inequality spreads each nook and corner,
The byproduct of intolerance is inequality,
Inequality in gender, in work and everything,
The main victims are women and children.
Inequality creeps more in underdeveloped nations,
Where gender equality plays major roles,
What a pity, women are not treated equally
Not to visit even the worship places of man gods
In older times, inside the caves
Were we not together leaning on the wet walls
While hunting, preparing fields for cultivation,
Why? That time only man and woman.
In some culture, status of women too low,
They treated as a machine for reproduction,
Or as toys to pacify the sex instinct of men,
Neither they allowed for education and free thinking.
Is the world revolving backwards?
Superstitions and gender equality cross the earth,
Women, the have nots are exploited everywhere,
In wages, in status, in life and what not?
Law is there for everything.
But, in most place seems like scarecrow,
Law only for the poor and downtrodden
And the rich are always beyond law.
