Mars and Venus play keepie-uppie
with the Earth close to full-time
On me ‘ead Sun, Dawn O’Time
shouts from the event horizon line

A pile-driver rockets right through history
whizzing past maternal lines
magnetic women play all positions
yet still get benched unequally

A nutmeg here, the odd foul play,
silence, nod, the knowing look,
chattel, dowries, sons inherit,
daughters walk they don't drive cars

Slowly though, the Earth keeps scoring,
floating in space and time,
while well-intentioned people keep on working.
In plain English it's best to write:

simple truth and inborn fairness
spring up forever from the side-line.
