Can we look at the rapist – the one who did wrong?
Was it bad upbringing, social issues, or genes gone wrong?
Can we look at the man who hammers his wife,
And not be the support that bolsters his fake pride.
What is the cause of his hate for women,
His need or love for violence, or his horrific perversion?
Is it that he feels less? And what makes him this way?
Isn’t it time to look deeper and bring about some social change?
