Patriarchy

So men have gotten the fame they desire!

An entire day to their name! Who will enjoy it?

Who will cherish it?

Who will value the importance of it?

Who will disregard it?

Who will relate to it?

Who will abuse the power it lelt?

I know not!

What I do know is that men have a bad rap

History has turned them into a patriarchy crap

That has defined a man’s role in society,

Trying vainly to bind them into labels that are sappy.

Men and women are different. Let’s celebrate that!

Enjoy the opportunity to meld minds together,

Enjoy being amorous, friends, sons, daughter,

Binary opposites who need one another.

Don’t let social needs rule your ethics and values,

Generally, women are greater nurtures,

While men have a greater ability to withstand

Handle, and shoulder problems that grind

The heart and mind into dust, if their strength

Weren’t obvious in its existence in each breath.

Listen to the the father, son, brother talking:

They discuss how to provide for their family’s being

Proud of their conduct as they also give of themselves

To their ‘women’, children, friends, and careers.

Never underestimate the support that both

Generate to help survive in a world where debauchery,

Sin, gaslighting, deriding, racial slurring, iniquity

Are all part of our social order, that we deem both

A Necessary evil and a required critique of the unacceptable.

For change and acceptance to occur,

Time, teaching, learning, understanding don’t slur

The values of humanity, rather, they enforce them

By being more charitable, helpful, and adaptive.

I'm a Canadian whose life has been interesting as I've lived in Developing countries and here. The contrast of law, order, and amenities available to us Canadians (which we take for granted, sometimes) to war torn civil wars is enormous. It leaves an influence upon the soul that cries out for justice. My poetry and writing reflect that and more.
