Caged Dove

This world was built by a rash assumption,

One that disregards women’s basic rights.

It is promotion of mass consumption;

It is the spilt blood by too many fights.

It is when her “Yes.”  blurs to become “No.”

Because they say he takes priority.

She believes her own body is her foe.

Because it's shouted by majority.

"Provocative! Uncalled for!", they declare.

It’s always her clothes, never his action.

So tell me, does this seem undue, unfair?

Or do you just want a brief distraction?

If he claims his way to be out of love,

Then why would he treat her like a caged dove?
