This is a poem written by Alan Ardy, for the Millenium issue of AWARE, who has kindly allowed us to republish this. Alan has a upcoming poetry book, Champagne & Handcuffs.
How will she feel at the end of the year?
At the slowness of change and imposed tradition
As an equal member of so-called ‘mankind’
A social restriction which that restricts her and binds
A human rights abuse but does anyone care?
But she’s come a long way and it’s really quite far
And though it is true that most servants are maids
We should rightly applaud the females of our species
Has clearly refused to keep her mind in a fetter
A malicious falsehood since the earliest of times
So how will she feel at the end of the era?
Because while many females are better than equal
Another millenium of male domination
And what about God with his presumptuous title of ‘He’?
Or would that offend male values to their very core?
So remember her sisters as she attains success
Than achieving the highest levels of human endeavour
Ever be possible unless love for her mystery
