The Rib Poem by Josey Alfred

The Rib

Why was Eve made from Adams rib?
Was she to be emotions queen?
Was she to be his passion or pain?
With fairies face and a confused thoughts.

Adam was made from dust of earth,
Eve from Adams rib, he inert asleep
She was perplexed, for she felt no sense!
And emotion raved, she felt cheated.

A game of love and hate broke out!
Between the man and emotions queen!
Fighting egos, struggle to remain cool,
And try to excel each, to be immune.

With emotions strong, and logic poor,
She enslaves him, by tears and threats!
Her ego controls him and their home!
Makes him a slave, keeps him nailed down.

In virtual world, he is the king!
Has no freedom, to mingle with friends,
Has no right to commune, with none.
Even parents, wait in vain for him.

Thank you Valsaji, Many of the occurrences that take place in our society are very painful, I wish even a small number of them may change because of my poems, but it is a very bad situation. If only the Mothers who train the children change, then only the miracle can happen. In a materialistic world it is unlikely to happan. Thank you once again.

You have portrayed a very common occurrence in married life! Some women enslave their husbands through threats and tears....! The poor husbands often have to yield to the foolish whims of their wives to sustain the peace and calm of the family or just to show others that their domestic life is running smooth! A poem which resonates with the situation in many families!
