The Life of Us

The life of us,

       It's funny how you pull us down,

       lashed out and cut us up,

       beat us in drunken madness,

       hushed us silent and

       kept us stupid, for what?

Arrogance,

Dominance,

Testosterone.

 

Based on what we are, just a little 'x' separating us.

 

Forced marriages, no consent,

A life of breeding and the domestic.

We mustn't think, for to use our brain, it would be a sin.

We own no property,

         blocked from jobs,

         forget the vote;

We hold no power.

MEN CONTROL US.

 

the secret is, without us, ask yourself,

                                                      WHERE WOULD THEY BE?
