rules of the game

everyone’s looking for love, aren’t they?
everyone’s got dreams, goals, don’t they?
everyone has their place
everyone has a face
a right to speak
and judgement to listen
everyone fits in
everyone makes sense
every woman wants to be a mother,
every man wants to find another
female satisfaction is a myth
who wrote that book, who was that bold wordsmith?
who decided life could be drawn out
predicted, calculated beyond doubt
who decided what defines a man?
who said woman can’t, but men can
i pity the newborn child whose first gasp
forces them into our world of endless grasp
at meaning suggested in the theory book
but nowhere to be found on closer look
