You Have Sentenced Us

21666-head-down

Put us up to the girl we wronged
‘Say you’re sorry!’
You have put us in suits and ties
And shiny shoes that we pay to shine
What is a second sex?
Why feel victimized?
Why did your goat escape?
You have overfed us
So nervous about promoting yourself
You feel ignored? Us too!
So, we developed boys clubs and bromances
We admired your marching, calls, and letters
We heard your screams, cries, whispers, whimpers, and moans
It sounded like one hand clapping!
Sweet Jesus! I just heard you all GROAN!
Yeah, we can’t get any longer or stronger
Even with the male enhancement
If you don’t like the side or being pushed
Then why do you let it slide in the bush?
This prostitute thing is getting out of hand!
Who do you think made up this law of the land?
We’ll still find ways to bear children without you
Because the force is with us too!
That’s right, there’s no substitute for order
That’s why they keep crossing the border
Forget the hierarchy! It’s all malarkey! Let’s work on chemistry!
The glass ceiling breaks when you get a hammer
But throwing stones at glass houses only chinks the matter
Still, we admire you shedding light on the subject
Were you a criminal?
Why do you believe those were shackles?
They were merely beautiful silver and gold bracelets
Oh, my lovely, divine feminine mare
My masculine dark steed shall ride you out of your greed
If you take your power back
The Energizer bunny has quite a pack
Yes, you are correct, Love
Can’t hide your light under a bushel
If only female ancestors stand beside you
It would only be a gay point of view
How could you not accept fate?
Why must this always be a debate?
I’m deploring you, Darling, try not to hate!
At least old white men gave you something
Once again, I saw you roll your beautiful eyes
Why do you believe all what I say are lies?

We are as one
We are worriers
We need to stand up
But we also need a place to fall
To hear your sweet whispers
So that we too may ROAR!

About bognetta

Love has been so much more powerful than other people's control. I think it's all love, but sometimes it doesn't feel like love. That is because so many people are defensive, protective, and do not care to trust in that four letter word...love!
