Stereotype in a patriarchal society broken, as girl's have the freedom that a boy doesn't.
A nine year old boy

Crouching behind the wall,

Lifted his little heels

And peeked at the girls.

A few feet away

Was a creaky, creaky garden

With rusted slides and swings

And three girls between them all.

With dirt-smeared cheeks

And ragged torn frocks,

They played in that creepy place-

All smiles and laughter.

Hiding behind the boulders

Of the wall near the girls,

The boy longed for the freedom

That the girls had preserved.
