As the society swells with protest, I’m offering a glimpse, a viewpoint, a perspective to add to the fight for equal liberties and justice for all.
We are nasty women with battle scars
By the patriarch
Told to hide our imperfections
To silence our voice in many elections
Silenced too long
Only asking you see your hypocrisy!
lets rapists go free while
Calling single mothers whores
Over dead fetuses you mourn
But don’t dare provide access to
healthcare once they’re born
Moreover, you were fine sending our
children to unjust wars.
Equal pay for equal work
Isn’t too much to ask!
Your cup running over pours into your flasks.
These life-affirming cups
Would justly be
shared with your sisters in humanity
Can we broaden our viewpoint
If we came from man’s side
Stop the ages of fems crawling,
And walking behind.
BESIDE you we stand
As equal in importance
As functional partners
Intelligent contributors to our society
Mothers and sisters all under one King.
