He is a man

And he is God’s greatest creation.

Are synonymous,

Her mother had taught her that.

The word “Why” was erased

From her dictionary,

Come on, She is a woman,

She had no business using it.


She is just a commodity

To be used and abused

She is just a sex toy

Whose emotions don’t matter

She is just a glorified servant

Who happens to be the mother of his children
