Women of Afghanistan

Please Help ZNet





Listening to you,

How my male genius is rebuked

By your brilliance,

Women of Afghanistan;

And how ignorant and frightened

Those that call themselves Taliban.


Can it be God’s will that

Such imbeciles have rule

Over your lives?

Have they no regard for the

Excellence of the Prophet’s wives?


Finding no other route to dominance,

They use Islam of their distortion;

What life have they without

Women who bore them for son?

How hollow then is their boast

Of being privy to creation?


Do not, O wise and  hardy

Ones, grant them again your slavery.

Rise as amazons of the mind,

And set yourselves free

From their jejune claims to lordship.

Get battle-ready, and shoot from the hip.
