CHALLENGE -Women Vs Men  

A Woman in a Man’s world.
(A Bit of Both)

And so to bed I go to rest my weary head and body too.
I must consult my muse -
for words been put on page, surely she can’t refuse.

I mull on what I read today
And thoughts came tumbling in this way.

A challenge it is set
On which I place my bet.
'They' feel that we are the luckier of the kind
Are they out of their mind?

Opinion states that we have burdens too
We’re given that share in what we have to do.

We do it out of love
Never querying if orders come from up above.

When push comes to shove
You can see it in the things we do.
For giving birth is not much fun
Men should try it too!

The hardest job is given to womankind
This is what you’ll find
We multitask at best of times
Like octopuses - but never mind!

The saying goes you must agree
That behind every successful man you’ll see
A devoted woman is bound to be
To take the rap, to mop his brow
To intervene when there’s a row.

Now come on guys – admittedly, fastidious we be
To scrimp and save and nourish that money tree!.

But there are some – no partner in mind
Who go about their daily tasks- they are the rarest kind.

No rest for them: no hope in hell
They’ll tackle jobs not meant for them- they do it all too well!
For out of love their destinations run deep.
Deep within the heart and soul of them
their labour don't come cheap!

Wow, Bravo. A lot has been said about equality of men and women. and yes, a woman has her distinct role aside from chlidbirth that some men indeed dare not do.... but is it not wonderful to switch jobs ? after all, we have female welders and skilled male dressmakers?

Bravo to all women who can excel in a 'man's world'! It would be nice if we wren't put down when we do but accepted for or worth/contribution in society. Thank you for your commendable feedback, for points (means a lot) for stars and guys.

First, let me say I think you rose to the challenge. The roles could not be more different even when doing the same job. You hit the proverbial nail on the head with the "childbirth not being much fun" it is the only thing ( so far) a woman, a woman alone does.
Kind regards,

Thanks Cata for a kind review.Thanks for generously pointing me , for stars and that happy guy. There are other things we women 'take on' and make no bones about it.

Ah, Kitty, I agree that being a woman ain't easy, no way. Women and men have been given different roles and tasks, and both sets of tasks and roles are important, of course. I am not sure if there is anything that we men do that can compare to not just the act of childbirth, but in the responsibility felt and acted upon by women in attending to our children. A resounding loud applause I will give you for this verse you so wonderfully voiced, Ma'am.

Thankyou for an astounding feedback. Very grateful for the points, stars and chappies. Could have written more but tried to make it short for the readers. Both sexes have a role to play in society. We have to make the most of our time here and co exist peacefully knowing that each depend on each for survival. Peace and love!

Honey, Ur Such An Angel,,
Yeah,,,and behind them smiles are a devilish deguise. lol Devoted Beauties can be wickedly uncontrollable. BUT,,,we still cant get enough. Why is this, poetically wise woman? For some reason its they're a drug. We surely do get hooked. I know we cant live with out you though. When God created women he really created a rare gift. All I can say is, beware mankind cause they're getting more advanced by second. lol

This was a great write, Kitty. You are a very wise woman. Maybe a little tooooooo wise. lol Still love ya though. You have my vote. {If we cant beat them, we must join them} Good luck challenging poets-n-poetesses!! ~Andy

"For some reason its LIKE they're a drug" Fixed me error!!

Gosh darn Kitty...hard to argue a woman's logic!!! LOL!!! You have voiced your opinion loud and clear...nothing like an opinionated woman!!! LOL!!!...please be safe and well...thanks and take care...Love Me

Been there and done my bit and even more. Not a 'libber' as I believe in chivalry. Just a normal logical realist at heart! Thanks JLM for your kind feedback. Fair is fair I say. Say it as it it is as long as you have a good sense oh humor. Have a good day and take real good care of yourself.
