A Poem I Hope to Rewrite in 10 Years

Poem

 

These are the days we’ll long remember
The triumphs of great men pursuing their rights
To limit those of women to health, money
Our cents to a dollar

The days of waiting for the clinic appointment
Remember how frightening and long it seemed
They the wolves in gray suits in rows on the hill
Watching from afar, waiting their turn

These gangs of outragers who know not
That families started long before they could be one
Control one
Amalgam these facets out of turn to suit their whims

While women work day to day for so little access
Told to be grateful to even have jobs
Only to be told it’s the American dream
Keep trying, work harder, you’ll see
