In Protest

i wonder what kind of father you would make
the man who has gone to work
all of his life
i wonder what kind of career you would have
the woman who has previously
stayed home and tended
children, i wonder
what kind of divide
we might not foster
if we supported instead of
competing with
each other
i wonder how long it will take to balance
out these off
center and limiting
roles and how many voices
will speak up to protest them.
