Way of all flesh
At five foot four and seven stone,
Steve was all skin and bone,
At six foot two and twenty stone,
Brenda was all muscle and tone.
A love story of strange proportions,
Their bonding needed no potions,
It was a pure attraction of the heart,
In which their bodies played no part.
His brilliant mind earned him fame,
And Hammer throw was her game,
She fell in love with his quiet charm,
He fell in love with her heart so warm!
When out together in shopping mall,
They were the focus of one and all,
Deep in love they ignored the crowd,
Hands linked,made each other proud!
Gender equality is much talked about,
In media, pubs, and in jobs no doubt,
But the sex disparity has been wide,
From Biblical times,an unabating tide!
Do you seek to solve it by equal pay?
And honour women with equal say?
Would you accept one of Brenda size,
Marry Steve who is small but wise?
Evolution had made Men what they are,
From cave days to present day so far,
Women have evolved from those days,
To be trend setters in their own ways!
Gender equality is not because of us,
Because God says it should be thus,
God who at first made Adam and Eve,
Is the one to make Brenda and Steve!!
