A Poem

(And one of the women said to the poet "master tell us about our husbands." And he answered and said):

Your husbands are those unhappy labourers 

They suffer and yet  received less rewards

Your husbands are those poor carpenters

Exhausted, yet hitting for the sad rewards.

Your husbands are those sad farmers 

Toiling under the  hot sun to please your moods

Your husbands are those weary hunters 

Searching the woods for your assorted foods.

Your husbands are those tireless mechanics

They stood by the roadside so melancholic 

They move to and fro, searching for food 

They are many on the streets in sad mood.

They hide their grief with smiles

They cry in the secret and smile in public 

They walk daily for many miles

They are sincere and hypocritic.

Your husbands are the men in the fields

Striving for you and your children needs

To your husbands you must always yield 

Cherishing, loving and meeting their needs. 

Your husbands are your confided friends 

They are your pride and strong towers 

Be your husbands best friends 

Your husbands are your children's fathers

Your husbands are the ones you must adore

You dwell in their homes, and nurse their babies

You trusted them, gave them love, and more

They make you a wife,  to build their families.

"Your husbands are your reason for survival

They plant the seed in you to produce children

They ease your urge and you crave for survival 

Without your husbands, there will be no children
