The gentler gender for gentlemen . (For contest)

[font=Arial]   † †  
†† † † †  
I'm proud of belonging to the female race, † † † †
To hail from the fair sex † † † †
To be a part of womanhood , earthly sisterhood † † † †  
Not only because I have far less hairy † † † †
Smoother, softer fairer pinker skin † † † †
than the gents and men † † † †
But also because it is only † † † †
Our womb that cradles the unborn human † † † †
That's why we are the cradle of civilisation and humanity. † † † †
And our womanly lap that ensures the survival of the human race † † † †
Our motherly lap is said to be a child's first university. † † † †
I don't even mind being referred to as the weaker sex † † † †
For I connote it to refer to how we are a delicate delicacy † † † †  
Upon which our men ravish and feast upon † † † †
Wherein also lies part of our powers ironically. † † † †
I mean I have read of kings who gave up thrones † † † †
Just so they can feast their enamoured eyes upon and love a woman! † † † †
† † † †  
The chauvinistic world of men has tried to sideline us † † † †
Yet powerful women have risen and shone in all ages nevertheless. † † † †
Thank you God for creating the mother of all humanity, our first mother, Eve. † † † †
Long live womanhood, be proud of your gender. † † † †
Let's change the male dominated masculine mindset of this world † † † †
And make it more women friendly and feminine. † † † †
Men are referred to as gentlemen in English, † † † †
yet that can be paradoxically harsh in reality † † † †
For more women are gentler ironically . † † †  
† † †  
A woman is flower power † † †
That can shake the world with her delicate petals † † †
As her softer voice has learnt † †
to pierce, melt and mould his fierce metals † † †
of masculine armours of physical strength † † †
Without employing swords or guns. † † †
† †
A woman is divine art admired by her admirers † †  
A vital divine creation that creates and nurtures † †  
because the Creator has entrusted her with that magnificent role. † †  
† † †

Author's Note
Past poeMy version poem inspired by the classic below

Cluttered house

The manager and homemaker here ought to be ashamed † † †
Her scarves are dangling on the lamp † † †
Bath towels are thrown over the corner chair † † †
Because of which the wood's now soggily damp † † †
So many vials are cluttering the ledge of the window † † †
Books and toys are scattered on the floor † † †
Old files and forgotten piles are hid beneath the TV † † †
Gosh, the lost muslin has been found on the door † † †
Her books are half falling from the book case † † †
Sandals slipped from the shoe rack to the hall

For fun contest, inspired by the famous poem that I could resonate with personally.
