A concept of pretence
and of imperfection
devoid of any sense
and of affirmation
a construct of culture
is what define gender.

Within man made culture
and of modern society
without usual nature
and of humanity
is what aptly render
to define a gender.

A thought without concept
and of perfect reason
free from any prospect
and of communion
a construct of culture
is what define gender.

A line of division
and a site of contest
full of indecision
and a face of unrest
is what aptly render
to define the gender.

A strong idea of right
and of unjust power
victory of one’s might
o’er the self of other
a construct of culture
is what define gender.

An elusive term of lie
and of a pretension
devoid of bonding tie
and of sustention
is what truly render
to define the gender.

A destroyer of peace
and of a unity
no hope for perfect bliss
and of serenity
a construct of culture
is what define gender.

A safe centre for one
and margin for other
an ever joy for one
and agony for other
is what truly render
to define the gender.

A word without a sense
like wall without a fence
like eye without a lens
like crowd without a dense
is what truly render
to define the gender.
