Equality issues?(Poetry)Is it any wonder?

IS IT ANY WONDER

 By Eudiah Kamonjo. 

Is it any wonder

That when he says ‘I want be a dancer’

You think, “Mmm.. how creative”

But when she says, “ I want be a dancer.

You think, “Mmm… how trashy.” 

Is it any wonder

That when he says, “Am working late dear.

You think, “He’s so hardworking.

But when she says, “I’m working late dear.

You think, “She must be seeing someone else.” 

Is it any wonder

That when she’s promoted

You think, “She must have seduced the boss.

But when he’s promoted

You say, “He deserved it.” 

Is it any wonder

That when she’s late for work

You think, “She takes too much time dressing

But when he’s late

 You think, “He’s probably working out” 

Is it any wonder

That when she’s expectant,She’s sent on leave

But when his wife’s expectant

 He gets a huge raise 

Is it any wonder

That when she gets a scholarship abroad

You think, “She’ll never come back.

But when he gets a scholarshipYou think,

“ He’s going to help his family” 

Is it any wonder

Equality will ever be

For Eves and Adams alike.
