TO A WESTERNized WOMAN

WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME
> ALL YOU CAN SEE
> IS THE SCARF THAT COVERS MY HAIR.
> MY WORDS YOU CAN'T HEAR
> BECAUSE YOU'RE TOO FULL OF FEAR,
>
>
> YOU THINK IT'S NOT MY OWN CHOICE,
> IN YOUR OWN "LIBERATION" YOU REJOICE.
> YOU'RE SO THANKFUL THAT YOU'RE NOT ME.
> YOU THINK I'M UNEDUCATED,
> TRAPPED, OPPRESSED AND SUBJUGATED.
> YOU'RE SO THANKFUL THAT YOU ARE FREE.
>
>
> BUT WESTERN WOMAN YOU'VE GOT IT WRONG-
> YOU'RE THE WEAK AND I'M THE STRONG,
> FOR I'VE REJECTED THE TRAP OF MAN.
> FANCY CLOTHES-LOW NECK, SHORT SKIRT,
> THESE ARE DEVICES FOR PAIN AND HURT,
> I'M NOT FALLING FOR THAT LITTLE PLAN.
> ALWAYS JUMPING TO THE MALE AGENDA,
> COMPETING ON HIS TERMS.
>
>
> NO JOB SHARE, NO CRECHE FACILITIES,
> NO FEEDING AND NAPPY CHANGING AMENITIES.
> NO TIME OFF FOR MENSTRUAL PAIN-
> "HORMONES" THEY LAUGH "WHAT A SHAME."
> NO EQUAL PAY FOR EQUAL SKILL-
> YOUR JOB THEY CAN ALWAYS FILL.
> NO PROMOTION UNLESS YOU'RE STERILISED.
> NO PROMOTION UNLESS YOU'RE SEXUALLY TERRORISED.
> AND IS THIS LIBERATION?
>
> I'M A PERSON WITH IDEAS AND THOUGHT,
> I'M NOT FOR SALE, I CAN'T BE BOUGHT.
> I WON'T DECORATE ANYONE'S ARM,
> NOR BE PROMOTED FOR MY CHARM.
> THER'S MORE TO ME THAN PLAYING COY.
>
>
> LIVING LIFE AS A BALANCING GAME-MOTHER,
> DAUGHTER, WIFE, NURSE, CLEANER, COOK, LOVER-
> AND STILL BRING HOME A WAGE.
> WHO THOUGHT UP THIS MODERN "FREEDOM"
> WHERE MAN CAN LOVE 'EM AND MAN CAN LEAVE 'EM
> THIS IS NOT FREE BUT LIFE IN A CAGE.
>
> WESTERN WOMAN YOU CAN HAVE YOUR LIFE
> MINE-IT HAS LESS STRIFE.
> I COVER AND I GET RESPECTED
> SURELY THAT'S TO BE EXPECTED-
> FOR I WON'T DEMEAN THE FEMININE
> I WON'T LIVE TO A MALE CRITERION.
> I DANCE TO MY OWN TUNE,
> AND I HOPE YOU SEE THIS VERY SOON,
> FOR YOUR OWN SAKE-WAKE UP AND USE YOUR SIGHT!
>
> ARE YOU SO SURE THAT YOU ARE RIGHT?

Creative blog.  I thought it was the best site out
and we had to go back to it! Every chance I get on the
net I search for blogs just like your site.
I was in love with your breast plastic surgery blog site.
