She, The Ship's Captain

Poem By RAVIKIRAN ARAKKAL

She wore the uniforn,
For over thirty years,
As the captian of a ship,
After working like a man,
As a helper, first, second officer,
Rising to be the captian,
Always acting shooting
Orders, which was promptly
Carried out, never marrying,
No one doubting,
That it was a female captian,
In a male's name,
till she was seventy five,
When she declared the facts,
Making everyone wondering
How this happened
In this simple world
Of dominant males
And chauvanism prevailing ever.
