Ungrateful Wenches Like Me

they let me vote
even pick out my own clothes
i can also read
whatever, whenever i choose,

but they tell me
this body i inhabit isn’t mine
they try to tell me
i have no right to decide.

they let me think
but on some issues my thoughts
do not have weight
though mine’s the changed life.

one day they’ll find,
this powerful contigent of “theys,”
that wenches like me
don’t listen to theys like them.

  

Yes, I got all political today after reading that a lawmaker in Colorado blamed Planned Parenthood for the recent shooting that occurred at a clinic in that state. Instead, we should blame the domestic terrorist who broke numerous laws and took the lives of innocent people.  We should blame the lies and anger-fueled rhetoric of far right conservative politicians whose pandering to the lowest common denominator among the Republican party lead people to believe that they have the right to break the law of the land. 

Keep your hands off of my reproductive rights.

Peace, people.

      1. It does strike me as odd that any citizen with or without good reason can just go out and buy a gun. I moan about the UK all the time yet even our police don’t carry guns going about their normal duties. All the best though.
