You call yourself progressive

But when your daughter found a man,

You disapproved

When your son wanted to be a musician,

You became tone deaf

When your wife wanted shorts,

You shamed her

But when you saw someone in bikini

You pronounced it as progress to your friends

When your husband cried over an argument,

You called him weak

Yet you proudly counsel that crying is good

When your friend opened up,

You abandoned him

Yet you proudly waved the six coloured flag

On that rally weeks ago

Firmly we believe,

We’re not that person

But deep down lies the truth

That we fear to ponder

The truth that we’re just shallow
