why let lives be gender ruled,
rigid ruled and sexist schooled?
why be stereotyped and dull;
watch male fat fingers pull
needled thread, poked through
button holes and winter gloves too;
I adopted supposed-female fixing,
not for me typical gender nixing.
my boys taught to knit and sew,
create homemade cakes from dough,
they even can do gourmet cooking
(btw – neither boy bad looking) –
my wife better at hammering nails,
at sawing straight, I miserably fail
– she is so much better than I, at DIY;
neural wires crossed, don’t know why…
