AGENDER By Ayomide Inufin D’great

Written by Editor

In the beginning was the world
and the world was with man,
lo! The man had the world
behold! It’s the world of a man.

So, a woman is a womb-man
who bears the bane of humanity.
We then hold on to this mentality for a lifespan,
Passed it down from time to time till it became a vole of history,
Fathers went farther and mothers were murdered — the victory of patriarchy,
Masculinity is superiority — sovereignty of nepotism,
“Give them a life to die for”; feminism is euphemism,
Like a stage where the role-play is televised,
This problem is solidified and the solution is improvised,
The truth is a slave and the lies are colonized.

The folly is for the wise,
It’s a mental problem and the mentality is maximized,
How do we tell our sons that daughters also shine,
when the belief system is a thing of the mind?
And how do we unlearn this education
when its effects have built an institution?
We live in a present day of a million pasts,
Alas! At first is occurring at last.

The society is a scripted outline
of life and time of a lifetime
designed with the ideologies to hypnotize freedom.
Now, they live up to this down syndrome.
Like the madness of a young lover,
The exercise had to work out.
So, if your plans don’t work out my dear Watson,
It’s a mystery story; an enslavement of Freemason,
The falsity is to create tranquility,
Equity or equality, this Gemini is fatality…

The world wallows in this wane,
As her mindset is a victim of the golden chain,
The reign remains the same
Until we all realize the lucid bane…
