If You Can't Handle Me

 

I'm a woman

But not the palatable kind

Men see me

They want a taste but often can't stomach it

I writhe and thrash around

Until they have to spit me out

But women always see me

The whole of me

The pit of me

Every last bit of me

- let's evoke what World War II has taught us.
Don't let's patronise - let women guide us
when he slights our mothers, sisters, daughters.

And when he flays the vulnerable with derision

The Plight of the true Snow White

Her lips were red apples,

“Don’t trust lust!”

Because I realised my story was wrong,

Erased the ending they taught belonged

And then all I had to do was admit!

“She’s sick, she’s just sick!”

“She needs a doc...
