Not All Men

By Khushi Saboo

You say “not all men”,

But why do ALL women remain oppressed?

You think we try to usurp your power,

But it’s really just an effort to overcome the deep-rooted patriarchy.

It’s not about “her” deserving a higher rank,

It’s about giving her the very choice.

Don’t tell her to stay in or cover herself,

Learn to inculcate basic human decency yourself.

Remember when you glorify yourself for doing the bare minimum,

“She” was always expected to know it all.

Pussy for weakness, balls for courage,

That’s not how it was meant to be.

This is not about who deserves the power: he or she?

It’s about simply letting her be.

Success! You're on the list.
