Perspective
woman

the time has come,
my mother said, to
talk of many
things.
of
boys and sex
and etiquette, and
how to get that ring! you'll
go to college first, she told me,
and there you'll meet some men. in
classes, clubs and mixer parties, your looks
will get you in. you'll study hard, you'll get good
grades, a god job in the world. a job, a life, then
someone's wife, the endgame for a girl. alright my
love, you're ready now, the job that you will have
is marry well, bear lots of kids, and please a
rich,
rich
man



man

the time has come, my father said, to talk of many things.
of jobs, success, and making money, you should live like
a king! you'll go to college first, he told me. there you'll
study hard. you'll rise up to the best in class, beyond
that you'll go far. you'll get that office, get that raise,
and then you'll be the boss. a wife, some kids,
retirement, there is no room for loss. alright
my boy, you're ready now, the job that you
will have is get out there and make some
money if you fail, you're not a man.
