I wonder why!!

I wonder why, I wonder why,
women are never satisfied
with how they look,
how fat or thin, tall or short they are,
not even with the color of their skin.

I wonder why,I wonder why,
women are not satisfied
with that which nature has given,
could The Maker make a mistake?
God in Heaven, perfect in thought?

So many ‘dissatisfieds’ with self,
but satisfied with another woman’s look.
So burn that curly hair, and make it straight,
and twist your hair to make it curly,
black oyinbos in my fatherland.
Then buy that bleaching soap,
and your skin lightens up,
and tan that light skin,
so that you get the afro-look,
both white and blacks are in bondage.
Afro what, afro-white.
Its all nonsense,
operation nose-lift, operation silicone,
become taller by the hour,
make up, make down,
make left and then make right,
a black woman with red lips,
and a white eye-shadow,
too many demons are now walking the streets.
Hey!! wait, I have some suggestions,
how about yellow ears, and green teeth?
worse: is it true? – evolution theory?
their faces lighter in color than their necks,
their necks lighter in color, than their hands,
and their hands lighter in color,than their feet,
their true color is in their asses!!
– varying shameful degrees of evolution.

I guess it must be so damn hard,
to be feminine, but natural,
for a woman to leave herself the way she is
satisfied? with no enhancements?
I wonder why, I wonder why.
