Gender Justice

Let the rule be changed
That gives woman leave of maternity
Must now for men give leave of paternity
For a child came in the fraternity
Which woman with man shared

Let the role be changed
That man may be househusband
As she’s conditioned a housewife
As it is for the goose so for the gander
When lioness hunts a lion eats of her plunder

Let the rule be changed
That makes her a punching bag
And the man a boxer bent on conquest
For in the ring of matrimony
No victor no vanquished

Let the role be changed
That makes her a cook, cleaner, and all-carer
For to live as helpmates
They both agreed and joined

this is a great poem very expressive we all wish that societies will not give roles to people according to gender and then condemn them for not following tis rules may you live as you wish and as you please :)
