Women's Day

Women's Day1.jpg
Life is a real drudge
Yet I try not to bear any grudge
You, my lady have led a relatively sheltered life
You have no idea what it is to be a battered wife
You have never known frustration and anger
The kind one feels when one cannot satisfy a child's hunger
Yes I am the voice of dissension
Against any Women's day celebration
I am that perpetual underdog
The one who is expected in all weathers to slog
With no hope of any respite
Always having to put up a very tough fight
To protect at least my children's rights
I will never have the possibility or the luxury
Of being able to discover the real me
I continue to be a victim of deprivation and poverty
The day I am able to see some light in my life
The day I stop being a goodfornothing's wife
I will join in the Women's Day Celebration
I will salute the world and our great nation
Jai Ho

(As recounted to me by an unfortunate poor house maid)
