working woman

look! up before sunrise,
cooking, cleaning.
then off to earn a substandard wage,
it's a mashochist.
it's a glutter for punishment,
no, it's a working woman.
faster than a professional maid service,
more intelligent that a male chauranist,
able to juggle a home and a job,
it's a working woman!
dedicated to equal rights,
equal pay and total exhaustism.

-buku lama, baharti bin hamzah, 1986.

duhai umi, lihatlah anak mu yang dalam kerinduan.
terima kasih abah kerna mengiringi di lantai shema.
