The Male Chauvinist - Poem by Donna Caldwell

Now will you get in that kitchen
I’ve told you once before
And when you’ve washed all the pots up
Make sure you mop the floor

When you iron my shirts
You’d better iron each crease
And when you wash my jeans
Make sure you remove the grease

When I arrive home from work
I want my dinner ready
You should know what I expect
Since we’ve been going steady

You can pick up my clothes
That I have left on the floor
And hang them in the wardrobe
Where they were placed before

You will do as I say
Especially when we wed
So when you’ve done all the chores
Get yourself sexy and ready for bed!

    Beautiful poem written in simple words yet those words strike hard, bursting the bubble of fantasy of a woman who fancies about a marriage of love and on the other hand it reflects a mind set who belittles the status of women to do just household chores. Well done Good job! Read my poem She its on feminism :) (Report) Reply

    I wanted to read this poem, lured here by the title - and how brilliantly I was rewarded! The irony is just so delightful and hopefully moves the male species (of which I'm one) to some positive action in this area! Great work, Donna (Report) Reply
