Sexism

What are you doing
out of the kitchen
get back to baking
where you belong.

What are you doing
out in the wild
go back to knitting
where you belong

What are you doing
Arguing back
Shrink back to the shadows
where you belong.

What are you doing
joining the army
go back to admin work
where you belong

what are you doing
Wearing those jeans
go back to wearing make up
where you belong

what are you doing
wearing those short skirts
leading men on
Is the street corner where you belong?

What are You doing
telling us how to live
When we live in a time
where we can choose where to belong

The End
