world builders

By Octobias Obie 

They say the girl’s place is
The kitchen and her slim
Arms, the family must serve.

The boys, we watch go to
School every morning
In special shirts and shoes;

They say we’re good for nothing:
Sometimes we receive spits for
Our sweat in the kitchen…

To us, they say school is taboo
But not for men – they are
The builders of this world.

Artist: Ithali Khoza – South Africa
