Pretty Woman

There’s something quite disturbing
Bout the rat race that we’re in
That only sees the value
Of women who are thin
And yet by all accounting
Most ladies are more large
Than the zero sized matchsticks girls
In images discharged

For even those of healthy weight
Appear to be so fat
Compared to pictures in the news
Where everything is flat
From stomachs to no bottoms
And sometimes even breasts
Where skinny seems to correlate
With how to look your best

Not then forgetting make up
Plastered on face and lips
In some disguise; maybe a shot
To detract from the hips
That are also cursed by women
For bulging a tad more
Than those they see in media
Yet are quite fine for sure

And so I call on women
Step up and make a stand
To sit contented in their skin
And rise across the land
To fight this crazy fashion
And more so be happy
For who you are not how you look
Is ten times more healthy!

A Planet Cries

Oh feel the planet’s salty tears
Consumerism rife
That calculates for profit each
Unique human life

From childhood prodigies who are
Pushed and pulled to be
A tower of dollars mounting up
And stars for all to see

To women walking on the streets
All clad in skimpy clothes
For men to buy and use at will
Prostitution to expose

Or the slaves of inner Africa
And human trafficking
For wealth and riches to amass
A trade so damaging

And children working on the street
In Southern Latin parts
Risking abuse for little gain
Such impoverished hearts

Plus gambling, alcohol and drugs
All sold for pots of gold
To those who’s cravings buy them out
Their lives deprived and sold

Lest murder, wars not to forget
Corruptions of the soul
The depths of tears that spill for all
Consumed from pole to pole

 

Where Is The True Equality?

Where is the true equality
That comes this day and age
When it appears some women are
Still treated like a page
As servant in attendance and
Enslaved just by their sex
Excluded by their gender that
In short’s a double hex
To curse them; hold them hostage to
Deny them freedom to
Stand up, be strong, uphold their rights
It really doesn’t do
For bar the call for equalness
And move from suffragette
Woman should stand equivalent
Alongside men and get
An equal part in what is said
Throughout society
To have, to hold, to be involved
Not side-lined!  Let them be
Allowed to breathe, to prosper, to
Contribute more beside
Consider them in equal rank
In unity reside

Reset Parenting:  Equality

Harassment

There are many layers to harassment
The subtle and more sour
The clothes of provocation that
Are worn to overpower

The undergarments that constrict
With suits that quite immerse
The ties that throttle or perplex
And shirts that noose not nurse

The dresses that disguise the facts
And belts that whip and scar
The shoes that kick in teeth and head
The bags that hold no bar

The wardrobe of persecution
Worn by those still more and more
The constant form of harassment
That goads and plagues for sure

And with each fashion statement they
Torment so constantly
These items that persist on paths
Exhausting anxiously

Harassment, such a cruel sport
That’s dressed in many way
But one that really has to stop
Destroying lives each day
