Just listen! – Promote Yourself


listen 
 
Just listen! I won’t tell you any wonder
Your issues with feminine gender
And belief that women only hinder
Are but bigotry wrapped in anger 
 
Just listen! I won’t tell you any wonder
Be cool and don’t lose your temper
Why don’t you pause and ponder
And see women’s luster and splendor?
 
Just listen! I won’t tell you any wonder
Think of your roots and first ancestor
And how all of you get a successor
Certainly, there’s always a great partner
 
Just listen! I won’t tell you any wonder
You certainly have a grandma and mother
And maybe an aunt, daughter or sister
Think how they made your dreams broader 
 
Just listen! I won’t tell you any wonder
Scroll through history with a wise cursor 
And sail into the wide blue yonder
You will see you had the wrong number
 
Just listen! I won’t tell you any wonder
Your chauvinism and attempts to murder
Her ambitions, creativity and ardor
Just strengthen her and boost her willpower 
 
Just listen! I won’t tell you any wonder
Be honest! Are your claims a mere blunder?
Seek truth deep in you or any further
Don’t you think it’s time to surrender?
