Of Course, They Don’t See Women As A Fellow Human — Patriarchy

Poem: Patriarchy — I am sure, her, him or they, if you read this, you have come across men who think their highest achievement is being born a man.

 

 

I am sure, her, him or they, if you read this, you have come across men who think their highest achievement is being born a man

They may have a far lesser understanding of life but always pretend that they are tapped into the universal plan

And of course they don’t see women as a fellow human but someone to lord over

Their upbringing left no scope for learning, and they bring their own bar down lower and lower

Men who feel the need to be right, always weather with their daughter or son

Who like to have the last word or else all hell breaks loose with abuse and the fallacy of their being comes undone

Never miss real stories from India's women.

Register Now

As they age, they become these egomaniacs whose energy can fill up a very large space

Their show of this faulty power is an absolute disgrace

These powerful men, mind you, are also super dependent

There isn’t a single task they can complete in independence

But will have an opinion on how things should function around

If being a man was a job, they would have been fired or clowned

Humanity is the primary requirement of being a mammal called human

Such men and the women who are enablers of them are the reason of chaos and confusion

Being raised by two imperfect people so steely and strong, as a human and not just a woman

The least I can do is raise my little one the same, who will question everything inhuman.

I may sound a simpleton trying to be poetic of a problem so dread

But if my simplicity takes me to my humanity, I would rather be simple instead.
