A friend of mine wrote this poem on their blog & I thought it was very good! I thought that the sentiment ‘They say life’s not fair – and with that I agree,/ but shouldn’t we make it as fair as can be?’ very much reflects what my blog is about! Check out the blog here.
If I could go back in time and “re-take” my pick,
I’d be born as a guy and not as a chick.
If I could alter my form: existence transferred,
I’d live on as a bloke and not as a bird.
It would destroy my soul and make me depressed,
to live in a world where my worth was my flesh.
To know that one day, I’d be judged and assessed,
by the shape of my legs and the size of my chest.
Some females are ordered to spend life indoors,
some sell off their bodies, though largely by force,
though some live a life, in which harm is reduced,
it’s due to the offspring and eggs they produce.
We currently live in a culture of greed,
exploiting the helpless, in absence of need.
If you tried to see things from their point of view,
you’d find out quite quickly, that they suffer too.
We’ll each be remembered for the lives we have led.
Should we treat others fairly, or harm them instead?
They say life’s not fair – and with that I agree,
but shouldn’t we make it as fair as can be?
So tell me, do you think you’ve figured it out:
what these rhyming couplets are talking about?
See, in my opinion I’d say: “It depends”,
they could speak of women, but also of hens.
