  • Funny, Some People Think
  • War will be different for them
  • They see the deadly destruction
  • But theirs won’t make them a victim
  • They’ll start the fight on Friday
  • Night
  • Then fight
  • Until Sunday
  • Back to work on Monday
  • And if they get injured or hurt
  • The enemy will nurture
  • Them back to work
  • So they can fight some more
  • And even up the score
  • No loss of electricity
  • Water will flow
  • No pain toward victory
  • No disappearance of people they know
  • It’ll be like a picnic
  • Only ants are pests
  • We’ll be in and out quick
  • Unlike the rest
  • Once they knowwe are serious
  • Fear will make the enemy delirious
  • And sue for peace
  • Just beating our chests will scare the beast
  • Our thunderous protests
  • Will make them confess
  • We’ll sing, we’ll cheer
  • The brave will bring up the rear
  • We’ll snarl, our fists we’ll ball
  • We’ll persist, insist…

I tell him I will love him forever.

All he has to do is move to Africa.

Quick Question…When you say a female child is useless because they don’t meet up to your expectations of a female child, what do you expect?

Expectations such as;
~To be a great chef, so that she can cook great meals for her brothers, children and husband in the near future.
~To bow to your belief in gender role of the kitchen as the place for the female child in the house, because that’s what you have been taught, and you equally taught her same, but she refuses to subscribe to your belief.
~To be sensitive to your feelings without you being sensitive to hers, accusing her of not caring about anyone, not bothering to find out why the child does not express her feelings, perhaps you never taught her to be expressive.
~To shut her mouth when opinions are being given, because really she’s female, women should not speak up…
