Who Cares?

 

Who cares about the woman

Responsible for all the chores

The cooking, cleaning, ironing childcare

Not forgetting the dirty floors

 

Who cares when she doesn’t feel hungry?

That she still has to stand and to cook

Who cares when she’s feeling exhausted

Does anyone bother to look?

 

Who cares that the sinks are all dirty

The plugholes are full up with hair

Who cares when there’s piles of ironing

And there’s dust and dirt everywhere

 

Who cares that a fucking black sock

Is turning a white wash to grey

Who cares when they miss and pee on the floor

Who’ll clean it up the next day?

 

Who cares that this wife and this mother

Is hiding the woman inside

Who cares that she sacrificed most of her life

When she gave up the woman for bride

 

Who cares that now she’s unhappy

That the burden sometimes she can’t bear

Who cares that she’s taken for granted

Cause the husband and kids they don’t care

 

Who cares that she’s given all that she can

Now she’s empty and aching inside

Who cares that she’s longing to turn back the clock

And close the door on this life

 

Who cares if one day she won’t be there

Cause she’s gone off to find a new life

Who cares that she’s gone back to look for the time

When this woman was not just a mother and wife…

 

They Will!!
