Truth to Power

You mighty patriarchs –
keepers of the keys,
titans of theocracy –
your world is built on paper lies.

You will not drag us back
to servitude or own our bodies.
Those chains have long been melted,
forged into the strength of unity.

Lest you forget – sisterhood is powerful.
We are here, we are legion and shall remain:
wise women warriors,
free to live as we see fit.

  • Glad to hear it, Mark. There are too many of them.

    Love it! – there are still lots of these dinosaurs around and still women who fall for their idiocy

  • Yes there are, and they are out in force in the GOP in states. Glad you like it, thank you.

    I love your sentiment has been directed at those men whom think it is OK to do this… and would rather stand behind you in your efforts. This is not to say I wouldn’t stand in front of you… to defend you, for I would do that as well. Either way… you have my support. xo

  • Appreciate your thoughtful feedback, Russell.
