The accompanying photograph exhibits the patriarchy-promoting poem, entitled “My Mum” which highlights the home skills of moms all over the place. “She does all the cleaning and shopping, and makes a wonderful tea!” reads one condescending verse.

“The mad thing is the number of people this has to go through,” vented another on Twitter. “The author, the writer, the printer, the school, the lecturers and NO ONE at any level says, ‘Hang on a minute…’ “

Some Twitter satirists even reworked the song’s lyrics to mirror modern-day gender roles.

“My mum’s one in a million, With degrees and a reasonable wage, She shares the domestic roles with my dad, Because we’re not in the Stone Age,” belted out one social media songstress. “She’s a complex human being, Which sometimes means she gets narky, But the sure fire way to make her day, is to shout f – – k patriarchy.”

Out Of Ark Music has since apologized for the controversial tune, but says there's little they can do to stop schools from using it.
