Did it begin as revolution for justice called by poor women?
Saturday: Evolution of Patriarchy
- تبتهل بعض الامهات الى ربها قائلة لماذا ياربي كتبت علي ان انجب اولاد يعملون اعمال شاقة تفرض عليهم من قبل طبقات معينة.
“Díos, ¿por qué aumenta nuestra productividad sólo para enriquecer a nuestras suegras?” llaman las mamas cuidando los secretos de los cultos maternos que ceden el Tiempo Sobrante de Trabajo durante el tiempo que ya les deben a las suegras, quienes les dan el pan de cada día y les dictan sus tareas para vivir después de la muerte. “Vamos con la tesis, la fe en el padre, escribamos que los hijos de nuestras vírgenes casadas con los hijos de los cultos maternos enriquecidos por nuestra labor, son iguales a sus propios hijos úteros. Los demás serán esclavos.”
(performance text; performance continues as performer refers to book: Roman Mythology)
Did it possibly begin as revolution to endinjustices
then making some rich and some poor matri-kin?
Did Indebted matri-kin mothers opt-in to citizenship patrilineal that
creditor matri-kin extended to poor matri-kin men?
(Once the only route to a share of the loot's a paternity suit?)
Hear the poor mothers' plea:
“Why, by my god’s bounty, am I, in bondage,”
cried keepers of mother cult secrets, secrets that increased their productivity,
and that created surplus labor time, in time still owed
"to in-laws, now rulers,who give us daily bread and
tell time we must labor to live after we're dead."
By the roman era, rulers hear a rebel clamor for a change they blame on Jews for their faith in their father, (and it had taken great faith in a mere hypothesis
for Moses to insist -- a couple of millennia ere Rome’s pater familia --
that jews, today still matrilineal, honor the father, he who husbands the mother, above her brothers and her other sons.)
But Rome’s poor who were not Jews, got somewhat confused religious views
about rams planting seeds inside empty ewes;
Hear this variation on a prayer to the Mother goat cult they might use:
"Ewes, in the rites of the ewe men,
write human rights are now due men if sons of virgin brides
by sons of Rome who bore arms for you, and are
as sons you bore, citizens of Rome, not slaves.”
But they made their point.
Minerva, Athena in Rome, meets secretly with the Roman matronalia,
behind the temple of Juno Moneta,
money minter, protectress of the Roman state, childbirth, and all labor.
Minerva advises, “Appease the rebel matri-kin with keys to Roman citizenry, -- only passing patrilineally.”
“Hello!” says Juno, “that let’s us define those with no patri line proof, as slaves,
divided in truth from our citizen masses.”
“And we’ll still rule both classes,” chimes in the goddess in whose temple Rome’s records were kept, Vesta: “Virgin state, marriage, wills, if not found in my files, they’re not legal deals.”
And yet, at the top, old ways don’t go away right away.
We know, for although Julius became Caesar promising his legionnaires “Sons, you’re my heirs”, and the Egyptians, and Greeks, “The son Cleopatra bore me shall rule Rome;” still,
by the will the Vestals fulfilled, Rome’s next Seizer came from within his mom's matri-kin'
Wasn't JuliA was the mother of the mother of Augustus?
As Kadija was the mother of the mother of Hussein?
