Trouser.A Yes Or No For African Females


Females shouldn't wear trousers
So says some african religious schools
Of thought
They claim it isn't
Parts and parcel of our culture
Detestable it is to them like a demonic sculpture
The reason behind these
Is not unconnected to the
Writings of moses
Quoted in the holy scriptures

Females can wear trousers
So says another african schools
Of thought
They claim their is no wrong in it
As long as it is modern
It aids th attributes of civilization
God judges the inner mind
The outward looks mortals dare not mind

The two sides of the coin
Can debate this issue till the break of dawn
At the end of it all
No side will demolish its wall

If my opinion was ever sought
The accuracy of my judgment
Is backed by god word
Sharper than a two edged sword

If the donning of trousers
By african female folks
Is doomed as proclaimed
Why are the european females excluded
God is not partial
His judgments are not sentimental

If his qualification
For his kingdom visa certification
Issued to the female folks
Is determined by trousers
Both black and white females are guilty
