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.
