Phil Roberts 1957 (Melbourne)

It's a man's world ... Like Hell it is!
Twenty-five years ago women took control,
And the Australian Lesbian's Party
Has well and truly sold its soul!

It's well and truly a woman's world now
And they don't believe in rights for men,
Although we for beside them years ago
We now don't get any help from women.

Men are now just fifth class citizens
Within this evil matriarchal world,
It's no longer a case of 'Jobs for the Boys'
Now the whole world is, 'Jobs for Girls'!

Now the Bitch-Queen-Fuehrer is in control
She says, 'We have to keep men in hand,
'Or else they will expect equality
'And after all, women must stay in command!'

So the poor men have to fight alone
In a sad quest for some kind of justice,
Since women refuse to repay our support
We fought for them, why won't they fight for us?

It's now truly a woman's world
Or at least here in evil Australia,
Where democracy has long ago died
And equality is now a failure.

About this poem

I wrote this after watching a recent movie where a character sang, "It's a Man's World!" Like Hell it is! Certainly not in Australia, where we live in an evil matriarchy, with men reduced to fifth-class citizens.
