Times are a-changing

Times are a-changing


I am a homemaker now,

So I do the housekeeping

and then some chauffeuring

And some fixing too.


I am a guest now

not just a passenger

Which means I get a smile

And then I am left in peace.


I am a person now

Which means I can wink at male colleagues

And they in turn can back-slap me

And my husband can just shrug and leave.


I am not just a mother

But a friend too now

I just hope I remain amma

And not be called Reema.


Yes times are a-changing
