the tanka reflects a scene of poverty and the still poorer status of women in the poorest family.


The maid fans
burnt coal and dried twigs fire
to make tea
for her lazy hubby
lying in sun and shouting

there is still so much injustice in our world ... and one hopes that for every new generation they will become less ..... I would guess there are a lot of brave people working for a change in these womens situation ... and your text that sees and gives a picture of the status of these women is also a part of that work...
