International Women's Day 2014 – Two-way poem "We are women"
Inspired by: "My Generation" by Jordan Nichols
We are women. That is all.
We’re mothers, daughters and sisters to all.
Today we declare that
We are second to men.
No one can ever say that
We are powerful, we are strong.
Because we know
We’re the weaker sex.
And we deny that
We need to fight for women’s rights.
For every day and every night
We’re supposed to serve the man right.
We damn the dumb rule of thumb that
We should all be equal in the eyes of god.
The fact is,
Eve was created out of Adam’s rib.
We don’t believe that
The bible was wrong.
It’s obvious that
A woman should always have a man.
It’s stupid to think
We are independent, we are strong.
Today we declare
Things will never change.
Unless we women put sexism to a stop,
And read this poem from bottom to top.
