We claim ourselves to be civilised,
Men and women driven by values,
A coherent society standing for what's right,
And yet cowardly categorising the below as taboos:
Shhhhh, don't talk about depression,
Come on it's just someone, a bit extra sad,
As humans we must keep it within and fight it,
Even when it makes you feel dead.
Ohhhhh, don't even think about bringing up periods,
There are designated code words to refer to it,
Some lunatics might refer it to a natural process,
But a civilised society would never admit.
Ahhhhh, men cooking is completely unacceptable,
Women running a house is a family bound to doom,
Let's hand our strong men some outright privileges,
And let the bride clean her destiny with the broom.
Ohhhhh, Love is a simple divine feeling,
Let's bound it by same religion, class & different gender,
So if any one goes beyond these pure boundaries,
We can simply burn those digressing offenders.
Even in 2020, these are taboos,
That dwell in our civilised society.
Amongst men and women of high morals,
Who love to practice impropriety.
