Mansplain! (Men Explain Things To Me )

Pooja Priyamvada
woman sitting with her back

The do’s and don’ts

should and shouldn’ts

yours to say

and mine to obey

the list is long

– smile some more

– just ignore

-let me handle this

– just dismiss

he takes the call

crawl or brawl

Since Mahabharata

they have the dice

as if we are mice

blindly following a piper

into a ditch

Dear men

please abstain

I understand

this pounce and save

is an old game

I need no saviour

no patron , no saint

I can take my calls

and wage my wars

keep in your pants

your mansplain* !

*verb

informal

(of a man) explain (something) to someone, typically a woman, in a manner regarded as condescending or patronizing.

“Mansplaining” terrm derived from #RebeccaSolnit ‘s Men Explain Things To Me
