Mold me , I say
Into the conformity of proprietary
As aesthetic as goods with fancy packaging
and 10% content
Make me the poster child for society ,
the circumference of the chapatis
Abort the daughter , lest she
have an education and crumble the wall
of patriarchy , now that
troubles us more than rape culture
Because let’s be honest
Whilst some blame it on the alcohol ,
We love to blame it on our
Oh dear , the consequences you’ll face
Still unmarried after 25 ?
Match kundlis before it’s too late !
Banned from pre-marital sex
Arrange shaadi.com profiles
Do it with a stranger to avoid remorse
( and shower him with dowry for his services , of course )
Of what worth are you if you cannot control a kitchen
Or pop out babies like a chicken
laying eggs . Don’t stop
till we get a fruit basket of sons
We are not scientists
Whilst they blame it on the Y chromosome
We love to blame it on our women.
Hold up , is that self-respect you contain ?
Feed your family first , altruism over vain
to a point where calcium levels drop
We are ignorant of these brittle bones
that once carried our skin
Now she’s just a maid
forgiving and washing away our sins
As we personify an object and objectify her body.
We are the item girls , the bikini bodies
the women in wet saris
Though never in reality
Because culture wakes up from its coffin
and reminds us we must cloak ourselves
Unless we’re asking for rape , then go ahead.
( Don’t complain later )
God forbid , you say you’re a feminist
Oh no , we have another one ,
as if individuality was a human right
that didn’t belong to anyone
who doesn’t have a penis .
For equal opportunities in work never equate
Must have reached success without endeavor
through contacts and sexual favors
Money is sexist and thus
your wage shall be lower than that of
the lowest qualified officers .
Whilst they blame it on economy
We love to blame it on the women .
Let us mold you , they say
as if you were nothing but a mound
And we allow them to
every single day.
