something i must hide

Breasts are something to be ashamed of, something to hide,
Yet something that a kid will suck on just to stay alive!
Something everyone once depended on once in their life
Yet something evil, something I must hide
A man's nipples are useless and yet just fine
The woman's are lewd tho to a hungry baby divine

To wear one layer of clothing!
A sin God forbid despite the sweltering heat
The shape of my nipples may show, what an indecent feat

I ask What about my comfort, I am a human I have needs
Hah! says society, human is a man, women are birthing machines
Tradition has a set of rules that dictate decency,
the trends of a patriarchal society
harassment and violence are crimes and so is discrimination,
Yet it is what we know, as a part of being a woman

If breasts are naturally bare, there is no shame about them. What creates 'shame' is the deliberate and provocative peep-show. As for the nipple business - pure idiocy! I have always thought the real allure of sensationalised female breasts is the male's desire to suckle - like a baby - with little thought to the erotic arousal of the female sex urge.

an interesting subject on which I dare not comment !

However, may I suggest that in line 3 the first 'once' is not needed?
