GOOD MAN. I present my simply honest,
That this is repeating throughout history –
We know the fact that this is a simple truth.
ANGRY WOMAN. You are trash like others –
Why did not you support us women that
Do we suffer by how men live with their heads?
GOOD MAN. Forgive me if I’m such ignored,
Hence, I cannot answer this question
That you asked because the facts that we have –
ANGRY WOMAN. Raped, abused, and oppressed!
That keeps us women in the slave of men’s world,
That they please whatever they like to do!
GOOD MAN. The facts that we’ve many problems,
Lies in our kinds, humkind that we’re sins –
Men against Men, Men against Women, Men –
RIGHTEOUS WOMAN. Against anything that
RIGHTEOUS MAN. Stands in their ways because they –
RIGHTEOUS WOMAN. Ignored, such greedy.
ANGRY WOMAN. That leaves us, women, in
Such sad, such suffering, and such like slavery!
That is my angry words – I’m tired of men!
EARTHMAN. We, humans, are trash, all of us!
EARTHWOMAN. Poor animals, poor living!
EARTHMAN. We men, women, have killed them lots!
RIGHTEOUS WOMAN. That is the human way,
RIGHTEOUS MAN. That we have taken their good homes
RIGHTEOUS WOMAN. Time to change the way we –
EARTHMAN. Adapt to better living,
That we are well to all living species,
Then who might know that our karma will
EARTHWOMAN. Will change the way we treat souls.
Only if we’re good to live species,
Will we learn to do the same for humankind?
