The Era of Manhood
The era of manhood frightens the child,
Confuses the child,
Far from enlightens the child
She cannot understand how man can own land,
How man can sell land,
How man can command land,
When he himself is an infant in history
She does not understand how man can own life,
When his own is so delicately thin
She cannot understand the essence of establishments or why manhood is taught from within
She cannot understand why man’s quest in life is to wed good fortune when fortune has always been in the eyes
Her father tells her it is because she is a child that she cannot comprehend
But Mother cradles her in deep desire,
Raising her against the definition of man.
