They beat her on the head

and whipped her with canes,

 

they kicked her

from every side as a football.

 

Pale, bruised

and trembling with fatigue

 

her frail bones

felt like broken sticks

 

under her hands.

 

When she lost her consciousness,

they raped her in turn.

 

What is it that makes

a man rape, a woman,

 

the pivot, on which

the whole way of life has revolved?

 

God, if it is a man’s way

of asserting himself and his superiority

 

then I am ashamed of being a man.

any man found guilty of raping a woman
should be hung on the spot
waste not years of prison time with appeals, just to be put to sleep
at the end......
Peace be with you Bhuwan

Wonderful powerful succinct poem. A "reality sandwitch" sadly rings true.

What is man?? The answer to this difficult question will vary so widely between many groups of men and many groups of women. This conceptual and rearing fog together with a society that has learnt to practise extreme violence "politely and in a civil way" can bring out the monster from the being whose raison d'etre in an evolutionary biological sense, has been the ability to survive, love and multiply without violence!

All my love and admiration,

Tarek

WELL WRITTEN. BEING BORN WITH THE MALE SEX ORGANS DOES NOT A 'MAN' MAKE. CHARACTER AND CONVICTIONS SUCH AS YOURS IS WHAT MAKES A 'MAN'.
TRUE 'MEN' DO NOT RAPE WOMEN. THANKS FOR SHARING THIS WORK FILLED WITH THE PHRASES AND IMAGERY THAT SUPPORT YOUR THEME WELL. GOD BLESS YOU AND THANKS FOR SHARING. JOYCE

Rape is brute force perpetrated against the helpless by weak souls who loathe themselves, thereby they don't value life. Empty shells...

Bhuwan,
Thank you for this strong, brave poem. Rape is ugly, violent, cruel and an assault on intimacy, sexuality, romance and love...to be condemned and punished each and every time if possible. Again, thank you, you speak for so many of us.

This is not a man's way: It is the way of a coward.

What is it that makes
a man rape, a woman,
God, if it is a man’s way
of asserting himself and his superiority
then I am ashamed of being a man.

It is not your way nor is it mine, Bhuwan. My father once told me that a man should never strike a woman; not even with a flower. Thank you for sharing this meaningful write, my friend. Love and peace to you,

Regis
