THE FEAR OF WOMEN

by Sive Klaas   May 20, 2017


In this country, we cover not the craniums
of our women.
As they amble in leeway like birds in the bush.
Murderous guise no perception in their
Consciousness; they are naked.

The cub, materialize its decency.
The witless feminine tend to servail slavishly
And the dreadful pride emerge for the au naturel.
How can we shield them?

When we crave for their gore.
But; we men - are divergent. Sacred;
Not the justification.
Crude is the reason.

The fear of women, in their ears is, ambiguous.
But in my works, it is, capture and rape.
In South of Africa - A bozo,
Eliminates us.

    Sive,
    Wow, what a powerful write!! Makes me want to read more about the political and social injustice women face in your country. It's upsetting that women are victimized daily and there is no real protection from the government. I believe when you have a voice it should be heard; your voice was heard in this piece. Please don't stop writing the world needs to hear from you.

    -All the best

      Hi Pagan, i am sadden by the killings and abuse that is happening in my country. It is as if justice, does not care. Everyday girls are missing and found dead.
