In the 1970s & '80s men fought hard to help women achieve equality. So now we live in an evil matriarchy, I wonder why women aren't fighting the evil of Negative Action to help men, now 3rd class citizens, achieve equality.

Back in the early 1970s
When women were just men's chattels,
Men fought hard for women's rights
Because justice always matters.

By the 1990s women were liberated;
But then they took complete control
With the help of Negative Action,
Leaving us to think they have no souls.

And now men are third-class citizens
But to most women, it doesn't matter,
It seems that in fighting for their rights
We were madder than any hatter.

Since men fought hard and valiantly
For the rights of womankind,
I find myself now wondering
Why women won't do what is right.

Why are women so reluctant
To fight with men for what is fair?
Have they forgotten how we fought for them
Or don't they even care?

Why won't they help us in our fight
To bring the Gestapo down?
To stand against Big Sister
To fight in Melbourne town?

Must be brought down off her pedestal,
So, equality won't be just for women
Yes, justice must be for all.

Give up your evil domination
Women, it's time to fight again,
Fight for true equality this time
Fight for the rights of men.
