***THIS IS NOT MINE*** A friend of mine wrote this poem, and I'm just uploading it here. Please let me (and her) what you think!!! It's amazing, isn't it? AGAIN, ***I DID NOT WRITE THIS POEM***

Age Rating:

Chapter 1

Boys will be boys

And so will a lot of really old men.

They treat girls like toys

Easily discarded into a bin.

And they have the audacity

To say women don’t have the capacity

To whack them with a baseball bat

Send them flying,

Screaming like a dying rat.

And to those who say it’s the testosterone

They cant help the hostile tone

Then why don’t you, poor immature

Get held back a grade

I’d even pay,

Till you’re more secure?

Girls shouldn’t major in math

Because all of them know

STEM’s not in our line

But it’s fine,

At least I can tell you

If the number of female rape victims

Is prime.

But some boys are nice

And wouldn’t hurt a group of mice…

Until those mice don’t think they’re nice

And move on with their very nice life

Meanwhile those “nice boys”

Are still screaming about

How thrilled they’d be

If you weren’t so filled with doubt.

Of course it’s not all men

That arent very zen

But it’s enough

That it makes it very tough.

And so, mister mighty male,

You don’t seem to comprehend

That while it might entail

That I was talking about you, a…”friend”

I was most honestly

Thinking you’d act a bit more modestly

And choose not to insert your percussion

Into a classical masterpiece by Beethoven

Whose purpose was for the women…

So now we have to have this discussion

Because of the shattered peace

You leave to be made clean

By the women who you so desire

To stay in the kitchen.

But you forgot one important thing

While you live life as a king

The kitchen is where the knives are

So you’d best run far,

Leave that door ajar.

Your main goal

Seems to be derailing conversations

That not a soul

Would be having in the entire nation

If it wasn’t for your implications.
