    Prized Possession

    When was it that society and religion
    Became so afraid of the sexuality of women

    Or was it just men who became afraid

    Trapping and turning beauty into pornography
    To suit the idealism of a capitalistic
    Made women its prized possession

    There was once spiritual prowess in her nakedness
    Once long ago
    The symbol of womb and breast
    Gave birth to life

    And a possession was once the sexual expression
    Of both women and men
    In an essence of a spiritual unity
    Defined by the pleasure both received
    In giving to life

    So how did sex become a sin
    Dirtied by morals
    And then sold in a tin
    Of instant readily affordable self gratification
    When did your own sexuality
    Become a commodity
    For them to sale

    And poor Eve, lead mankind to ruin
    And she alone made responsible for the fall from Eden
    So shall she pay the price in cultural centuries
    Of Christian and Muslim oppression

    Such is the weakness of men
    That by muscle alone defends them
    Such is the weakness of men
    That their God must of course; be a man
    Such is the weakness of men
    That in the face of beauty
    It must be their possession

    Such is my contempt of those men
    Who cannot comprehend
    Where their own lives began
    And who’s wives and daughter now exists
    In a poor excuse for love and worship
    Trapping and turning beauty into pornography
    To suit the idealism of a capitalistic
    Made women its prized possession

      I see no one commented on this. It is excellent both in concept and presentation. It is a sick world out there for sure. The generation of the 60's thought the answer was flower power. Might still be. Who knows?
