因為今天是母親節*... [updated with English version]

俗語有云,
鬼唔知阿媽係女人.
但我哋有無諗過,
其實阿媽都係人.

女權運動
係人權運動嘅一種.
千祈唔好當咗
做剪陽嘅活動.

世界已經夠混亂和不公,
吓吓開戰為土地為石油為原教宗
無謂再無啦啦整韃喇
為咗性別嚟玩對壘攪抗爭.

我哋個個一生出嚟
唔係港女就係港男.
冇乜特別為婚姻狀況年齡性別
去抬高自己踩低別人

我哋個個都係阿媽
十月懷胎嘅精品
做好自己
做對自己有意義嘅事
擴闊視野, 有信心
唔怕人哋嘅目光
就已經係一份
好好嘅母親節禮物

千祈唔好當咗自己或別人
係一舊叉燒或貨物.

Because Today is Mother's Day...

Any fool knows
Your mother is a woman.
But have we ever considered
Our mothers are also human?

Women's rights
Are just a type of human rights.
Don't ever mistake feminism
As some kind of vengeful Bobbitism.

The world's already full of chaos and injustice,
Wars started cos of land, oil, and religious fundamentalists
Why would you want to add to the mess
By picking fights over something as innocuous as one's sex?

Every single one of us was born
As either a Kong girl or Kong boy
There's really not much point
In feeling superior over marital status, age or sex.

Every single one of us is an apple
In our mothers' loving eyes
Do yourself proud
Go after your dream
Believe in yourself
And ignore others' stares.
Being happy in who you are,
Is already the best present for our mothers.

And please remember: never treat yourself or others
As a piece of roast pork or worse, a mere consumer product.
