Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 10, No. 10. July 16, 1947

Give A Woman Freedom

Give A Woman Freedom

Give a woman all her freedom
She is like a fox with tail afire
Knowing not, she runs at random
Till she quench her mad desire.

She is best like harnessed horses
Ploughing fields and ploughing well.
Man must drive and all the pauses
Are his blessings or his hell.

Let a woman be rod and master
She will sell thy house to Shame.
Known, to world, there is nothing faster
Than a woman wanting rein.

Omar Hjumas.
