Modern Woman - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

He seeks a woman who is modern
Without a twinkle of concern
Today joy is no longer just a boy
A woman has more skills to deploy

She is a companion
She is an attraction
She is a distraction
She is a fascination

He seeks a woman who is modern
Parading streaks displaying stubborn
The concepts easy come and easy go
In his dictionary is a big 'No, No, No' especially to the bimbo

She must be able to joke and laugh
Tease him at playtime with a scarf
At home laboriously contribute
Always maintain her youth looking cute

He seeks a woman who is modern
Multi-tasking must be her pattern
Today with her skills wide-ranged
Her role has three sixty degrees changed

She is an intellect
She is almost perfect
She deserves respect
She is a mans hearts elect

He seeks a woman who is modern
Who is yearning to learn!
For the concept of equality
He knows is not a nonentity

Gone are days when it all began!
When woman was born of man
Everything worked according to plan
Till the ban, they both took cover and ran

He seeks a woman who is modern
Who is yearning to learn!
He knows somewhere in his head and mind
The modern woman has risen from behind
