The Festering Feminism
The prejudice are we the him and the hers
We who set the edicts, the laws and the rules.
Upon her have bestowed a chauvinist curse;
A life breathing silently amidst the bigotry fools.
The endurance of norms to win social respect,
The chivalry earned by her oppressed presence.
The tag of multi-culturally sensitive and politically correct,
The stiff upper lip adding to her abiding acquiescence.
Though we hold the common contemporary visions;
The reality continues to remain as good as gold.
Feminism and empowerment are mere facades,
The old customs and practices too bold to mould.
It is the outlook that needs a constant change;
Overlook the sex and you'll find a human brain!
