bad girls
are females
who reject
and refuse
to follow the rules
that are set down for them
by males

New Song for the Times…

women
we need new songs
about a country that went
completely wrong
and condemned women
to poverty
misery and death
all at the hands
of terrified
ugly
controlling
power hungry men

Women…a poem

Free Woman in Orange Dress Sitting on Top of Diving Tower Stock Photo

I am here
I take up space
I have a brain
and I know how to use it
I have an attitude
and I know how to use that
as well
and I’m sick
of having my life ruled
by hateful men
men in government
men on the street
men in tweeds
who are sorry
women were ever allowed
into the sacred halls
of colleges
sick of men
thinking they know
ANYTHING AT ALL
about females
as if they have the RIGHT
to tell us what we can
and cannot do
as if they have the RIGHT
to tell us where we can
and cannot go
as if they have the RIGHT
to steal our lives
as if they have the RIGHT
to own our bodies
I’m sick of their constant
violence
constant yammering
constant fear
their pathetic stupidity
and hatred

women
we don’t need a lifeguard
WE NEED
to save ourselves

We will not bleed or die for the men who hate us and think they own our bodies.

THE PLAN…a poem

With Only 4% of Their Works by Women Artists, Museum Resolves to Only Buy Female-Made Art for One Year

 over morning tea
and a cigarette
she came up with a plan
to put evil and hateful men
with too much power
in dark dank prisons
so that women
could finally
be
FREE

we are NOT
the women of the past
we are women
birthed by witches
watched over by
dragons
taught how to play
with fire
and we will
NEVER
be owned
by anyone
so hateful men
think hard
about what you are
UNLEASHING
because
we will
NOT
go back
and you will
NOT
destroy us

These are trying times for most women…who see us being dragged back to the dark ages.
