Do you dare?

Rub a dub dub
Three men in a tub
Or so the saying goes…
Yet no matter
How hard I wash
The stain
Won’t come out!
Am I doomed
Like Lady Macbeth
Or just unclean
Like all the rest (of women).
This pun
Is my gauntlet to you
Do you take it up
And run me through
Or for that matter
Anyone else
Who insinuates
Such filth
Such lies?
As women
We must be our
Best friends
And this relationship;
Must start
At the start,
With the self…
Only then can we
Look out with
Equanimity
And love everyone else…

Do you dare?

Artist's Description

whilst doing the washing today the 1st few lines came into my head and wouldn’t leave.
i feel most strongly that women; in particular, can undermine each other rather than support and love.
this jot is the result…
