Man and Woman.

'Female' - the feeble male,
extending from Creation tale;
but 'mankind' once meant both sexes -
vexation not, nor gender hexes.

Taken from a man's rib -
ever such a blundering fib;
subject to her patriarch,
a little flightless thing in dark.

Both have their lineage in furry things,
evolved from lizard parts, the slings
of Time nurse us through the change
of body, mind, and social games.
