Should She Give Up?

Burdened by the paternal mindset,

to stay indoors and cook,

should she give up,

on laptops and books?


Beset by bawdy stares,

amidst snarls and glares,

should she succumb,

and gulp the churlish tonic?


Where men are the rule, the air  condescending

where hers is the fault, and culling a norm,

should she give up,

conforming to a thought consummate?


Should she be derided for her silence,

which could be simply the lull,

before she deposes the depravity

desiccating the boundless ocean.

should she try, or simply give up

liberating herself, accepting instead,

the cellar of restraints
