    Deprived
    She was conquered by traditions unable to exercise her freewill
    In the gathering of men she dared not speak
    A sheep subject to its shearers; she made no noise
    Customs kept her in a state of servitude
    She has no voice for her owner has departed

    Prone to numerous infractions
    She was subjected to ineffable practises
    Made to succumb to mystical beliefs
    Accused of being a life stifler
    She was convicted

    A woman who has no place with Men
    Empty-handed she was left
    Unable to access her possessions
    Forbidden to lay claim on the assets
    She was stripped of all she had
    O woman! What is thy offence?
