Can we be Equal ? (poem)

Can she spill sparky sperm in billions?

Or make semen march in millions?

Can his zest zap zygote till foetus?

Bouncing boy with boisterous features?

 

Can he feed with teats and udder?

Can they swap role of each other?

Can he alter her synthesis?

To fit into his quotidian praxis?

 

Can we cut short assiduous assault?

Molestation in meagre and mammoth

Can we give her a voice, the voiceless?

Can she be ferociously fearless?

 

Can we halt heinous hegemony

Of patriotic patriarchal ruining matrimony?

Can she use the skills in the kitchen

To impact, impart and flourish in teaching?

Can the pillar of the home

Who curbs dangerous daggers that roam

Be given a space in the state

To wipe off machos’ and such slate?

 

Can Eve’s dazzling dauntless daughters

Be let loose like running waters

That flourishes trees by the rivers

And calm His fears, when he shivers

 

Can Equality equate Equity,

Or entities have an identity?

Can we be Equal?

 

Cheers

One thought on “Can we be Equal ? (poem)”

  1. Beautifully used vocabulary. However the sentiment itself seems a bit limited in vision by defining a woman as “a pillar of home” ,using “skills in the kitchen” and a man as a producer of “sparky sperm in billions”. These terms contradict the very point of the poem by differentiating on such bases.
    And answering the conclusion of the poem, I believe equality can never equate to equity by definition and all entities have an identity by default.
    Great poem though, certainly makes u think.
