Women Cannot Be Free. - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

The chastity of woman is not practised voluntarily.
It is coerced by generations by patriarchy
With the dire consequence of death and estrangement.
In a cage, she feeds without lust, lusts without food.
Men never free women; Masters never free slaves.

    Its partially good poem…patriarchal mindset [excuse me Sir]

    Wonder I why, ‘The chastity of woman is not practised voluntarily.’?

    Are they weak? Patriarchy is a medieval system needs sanitization where no harmony.and full of anomaly
