Reverence on The Corporate Ladder

In our ever changing world it becomes more difficult
for women to flourish in business, because men view 
them as misfits, 

They try to deplete their power and
pride with familiarity, treating them as they would their
spouses, acting as if they are insignificant caretakers
of their houses and spawns,

Objects of their desires to be lured and discarded,
for entertainment purposes only,
Women's business accumen is rarely lauded,

The mens' behavior makes women feel inconsequential
and forlorn, causing them to doubt themselves and feel torn,

Intelligence and wisdom are never appreciated,
it threatens the male ego, so cleverness becomes

The men in corporate America would gladly
bury intelligent women beneath papers,
while they take all the credit and pursue
their capers,

God bless the women who have their own minds
and run interference in the nick of time,
for their deceitful counterparts would have them
looking like hysterical, flirtatious chicks,
discounting their talents and treating them 
as if they were uncivilized Hicks.

The world doesn't change much, does it? My poem The Sowing is about the treatment of women by men, I have many feminist writes mostly they go uncommented on ;) How could I not agree with you! I just submitted Genderside to a contest on the topic CRISIS not even an honorable mention, OH well no one wants to know? Light & Love
