The heavy work maintaining life
on women often falls,
So, therefore, in each month a week
of rest provides a halt.
Man, give her space, and wash her sheets;
keep yourself clean as well.
That way, she needs not launder stuff
or put up with your smell.
There’s joy in sex, and work as well,
(admit it, don’t be coy).
She may decide to tell you “no”,
or choose what to employ.
This principle, if it’s applied
won’t reach equality;
but “one week out of four to rest”
is blissful polity.
