It's a X-chromosome
Or a Y-chromosome
Of the man
When combines with
Any X-Chromosome
Of the woman,
Really determines
The fate of foetus
A male or female.

Yet people obsessed
With centuries old
Irrational gender bias
And sex discrimination
Always blame it on
The prospective mother
For delivering
A daughter
In place of
A son,
In yet another
Case of
An extreme paradox.

Comments on this Poem

Comment Thank you, Kundu saheb, for liking the poem and your so elaborate review. The subject is quite complex and debatable as different people may have different opinions but the fact is biologically this is man, and not woman, who is responsible for sex determination. Objective is achieved if message is well received by as many men as feasible.

Comment It is a man who is the cause of a girl child's birth.
It is his wife who is the cause of the boy child's birth.
But when a girl is born, nobody blames the man.
Some people question the mother,
why she did not give birth to a boy?
Because wealth is generally ill acquired,
people want a continuous control
on this ill gotten wealth.
So they want a boy
by the wife's grace!
Ere, fool!
Ill begotten wealth
must not remain with the begetter;
So God gives a girl child!
Because ill-gotten wealth must go!
