Metaphorical Irony

So many shoulders to rest our head,

but none to pat ours.

Trees full of branches,

but leaves only on one.

Finger licking delicious,

but pepper is untouched.

Rivers full of water,

but a stream's always empty.

World full of people,

but someone's solitary.

Volcanoes full of magma,

but some are dormant forever.

Freedom is a right,

but is biased to power.

Called as a blue planet,

yet there's scarcity.

And above all,

My dear friend

Everyone loves a rainbow,

but not when it comes to gender.
