Female

The mail today begins
with female brine shrimp.
Everything starts out female,
the writer writes,

And she includes elaborate,
detailed scientific instructions
on how to turn men into women again.

One's head fairly reels.
Oh the separatists are having a field day
There are the usual clitorectomy letters,

all sorts of other angers and injustices
spewed our way.
An exhausting business, really

Being a feminist these days
A kinder, gentler woman, they argue,
more pliable in man's hands

But they forget we are premeditated
and unrepentant.
No. We shall get the full brunt of the state's rage.
This is not a man's world today.

Tom Benson
In the 'animal' kingdom the female often takes her rightful place as an equal, and in some instances she stakes a claim to be the more powerful.
Cases in point being lionesses which conduct the hunt and kill, which at first might show the lion as lazy, but he will fight to the death to protect his pride.
Of course there is the slightly peckish example of the black widow. :)

We should be what we are. No-one better than the other. I never understood the nonsense of human male dominance considering that the female is the creator. I think it was born of insecurity. Even the word "mankind" was deliberately created to reduce the importance of woman. It is classic reductionism for subjugation. Unfortunately it is still believed in some parts of the world. Thanks for making us think.

if men would allow their gentler nature to breathe, things might be different. just a thought.

I hope that you're right. Men have made such a horrible mess of things.
