IWD 2014 – Oh, Let The Better Half Be Better, Man!


Women are called, ‘the weaker sex’!
‘Weaker vessel’, women are called;
Their role in procreation’s clear,
Which can’t be stolen ev’r from Eve.

A mother’s place in human race
Remains unmatched, superb always;
A woman’s body, mind God made
To nourish, nurture babes unpaid.

There are some things that both can do;
There are some things just women do;
There are some things women must do,
For men can’t do as women do.

Eve was Adam’s companion made;
They were from same flesh, bone and blood;
The girl has made great strides these days;
Most challenges, women can face!

Thanks be to God He made women;
They need more rights to equal men; ;
They need more love and gratitude;
Let not the modern world be rude.

Women are much better now;
Yet, they have long a way to go;
Admirable are their feats, oh!
Women’s progress ushers joy, wow!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Women are called, ‘the weaker sex’!
‘Weaker vessel’, women are called;
Their role in procreation’s clear,
Which can’t be stolen ev’r from Eve.

A mother’s place in human race
Remains unmatched, superb always;
A woman’s body, mind God made
To nourish, nurture babes unpaid.

There are some things that both can do;
There are some things just women do;
There are some things women must do,
For men can’t do as women do.

Eve was Adam’s companion made;
They were from same flesh, bone and blood;
The girl has made great strides these days;
Most challenges, women can face!

Thanks be to God He made women;
They need more rights to equal men; ;
They need more love and gratitude;
Let not the modern world be rude.

Women are much better now;
Yet, they have long a way to go;
Admirable are their feats, oh!
Women’s progress ushers joy, wow!
