MEN vs. WOMEN
He says it and then he gets pats on the back.
He does it and not even a single eye bats.
She says it and then she is told to shut up.
She does it and then she is called a slut.
He tells a joke and promoted he gets.
He crosses lines and is rewarded I bet.
She tells a joke and they crucify her.
She crosses lines and they end her career.
A double standard certainly thrives.
Dividing up sexes and heirarching lives.
Men get free passes and climb up the stairs.
While women get paid less but pay more for rewards.
Unless you’re like those who just told the truth.
And others in history who wouldn’t stay mute.
When you speak truth to power… silenced you’ll get.
But women much sooner. Not seen differently yet.
