Patriarchy - Poem by Francis Duggan

The son of the patriarchal father the mantle of dad he does don
And in his sons and their sons patriarchy will live on
And though the praises of patriarchy many may sing
What it stands for to say the least is not a good thing
In patriarchal societies war is glorified
As well as love of Flag of Country and National pride
Such things that to war always does seem to lead
Of peace loving people we seldom do hear of or read
Far too many patriarchal societies in the World of today
We'd be better offf without them is all I can say
Far too many patriarchs in every town
Who glorify war and keep women down
Patriarchs are not rare they do live everywhere
There are millions of them in the big World out there.
