Mansplain !! (Men Explain Things To Me )





The do's and don'ts

should and shouldn'ts

yours to say

and mine to obey


the list is long

- smile some more

- just ignore

-let me handle this

- just dismiss

he takes the call

crawl or brawl


Since Mahabharata 

they have the dice 

as if we are mice

blindly following a piper

into a ditch

Dear men

please abstain

I understand

this pounce and save

is an old game 

I need no saviour

no patron , no saint 


I can take my calls

and wage my wars

keep in your pants 

your mansplain* !


*verb
informal
  1. (of a man) explain (something) to someone, typically a woman, in a manner regarded as condescending or patronizing.

Term derived from Rebecca Solnit 's Men Explain Things To Me
