The Myth

A very prim homemaker once told me, that she always eats after her husband. Before I could raise my brows in feminist indignation, she continued,

“It ensures that he comes home in time every evening.”

This is to honor the antithesis, that empowers the thesis.

 

Domestication

is a myth to satisfy

puerile egos,

tame the wild instincts of

those who think they wield power.
