She must cook

And she must sweep

So packed she is

She can’t even weep

You don’t budge

And you won’t help

When asked for a hand

You let out a yelp

You go to work you say

Come on – so does she

Allow her a breather

Be a man – can you be?

When she is all done

You don’t even thank

Somehow being a man

You get a higher rank

I don’t think you care

She’s living or she’s dead

I know you love her

But only when in bed

It’s not a home for her

It’s more like a cage

I think she’s had enough

Just beware of her rage!

    1. Thanks so much dear… So nice of you to say that… It’s just that I feel a little inadequate when it comes to poetry… I can’t write it like you do. My poems are generally rhymes (the old school), and mostly prosaic… So I try, but then leave it in the middle. But I wll definitely keep trying now that you have said that…Thanks so much 🙏✌🙏


      1. You know, try as I might, I can never do poems that rhyme. And I am always amazed at how others like yourself can do it. When I do try, they always feel stilted, something I never sense in yours. Your feelings of being inadequate are so unjustified. The trouble is not the work. It is the self-doubt. We all suffer from that. But I feel once we get it out, all it takes afterwards is refining and refining. You have every talent for poetry, so don’t give up. I leave things in the middle too. But I read that no writing is wasted. It may get picked up later, on another idea is generated from it.

      2. That was so reassuring Vera. I had to read back a couple of my poems to see what you’re saying. But I always thought rhyming was the easiest form, and the real poets don’t do rhymes. Some of the best ones I know on WP (yeah…you included🤘) are so good at expressing with blank verses… But I get your point my lovely friend… I will pick back all the half written poems again…🖖✌🖖:-):-)

  2. So amazingly you’ve written,
    So amazingly you’ve smitten.

    This one exposes the fake society
    and it’s vile
    I love your poems for their content
    and the style
