In the surrounding, resounding cacophony
Her lone, dissenting voice was unceremoniously drowned out.
No one wondered, no one cared
Whether she had an opinion to air.
Discussions were taking place
Left, right and centre
Yet, no word of consolation
To her did they deign to render.
She waited with bated breath
For someone to atleast take a break
So she could maybe get a word in
And tear through the deafening din.
She implored with her big eyes
Holding back the gushing tears
She begged with folded hands
While struggling to still stand.
With a flourish and a stroke
They penned down their decision
Her acceptance was deemed to be
A foregone conclusion.
It was her life!
That was on the agenda
And she had no say
Because of her gender.
