SHE NEEDS A PEN NOT A PENIS By Bijimi Daniel Meindous

Written by Larigold

She needs a pen not a penis.
She needs a text book not a conjugal bed.
She needs the classroom not the labour room.
She is a child too young to have a child.

Her biological composition is not ripe for womanhood.
Her mentality not matured for parenthood.
Her physical strength not strong for a house wife.
She is a child not a bride.

You consider her consent irrelevant.
Her opinion does not count.
Her future dreams are being shattered.
Her economic contribution to the nation has been hampered.

All by a wicked system with no justification.
Oppressing the helpless and most vulnerable.
You should care for her education not your ejaculation.
She needs fatherly direction not a husband’s erection.
