You do nothing, we say;
You only eat that we cook,
Only wear what we wash.
We are the new feminists,
We love our girls,
But we don’t find any use for you.
You and we are not equals anymore,
You have all fallen behind,
For we are now open winged birds,
With a heavy backpack of responsibilities.
We empower ourselves,
When we learn driving,
And sadly avoid cleaning;
We share your financial responsibility,
For we pronounce ourselves independent,
And besides struggle to keep,
The old domestic chores intact.
Sadly, yes sadly, we sing songs of freedom,
And strength, by weakening ourselves again;
In stress we dive and find hard to swim,
But this swim is our empowerment.
