Freedom is an Illusion – An Ode to the Patriarchy

FREEDOM IS AN ILLUSION

AN ODE TO THE PATRIARCHY

Freedom is an illusion.

We are tied by tradition,

chained by charade,

stymied by society.

We are held back, pushed down,

shut up, demeaned, defiled and defrauded.

Do this, don’t do that.

Say this, don’t say that.

Behave like this, not like that.

We might give you this,

but we’ll take this back.

Act like a lady,

not like a woman.

Don’t speak your mind,

Speak mine.

Thoughts of your own?

Keep them to yourself.

Do what we say,

dress as we like,

behave as we want.

Dying inside

We don’t care; we always get our way.

FREEDOM IS AN ILLUSION.
