13 May 2017 – Rape Culture

We’re still raising our sons to be rapists,
teaching our daughters their job’s to escape.
Failure to fight back assault’s a great fault –
it’s up to them such things come to a halt.

Mouthing religions we hold in contempt,
preaching restrictions – from which we’re exempt –
words are the wood-chipper’s chafe our souls spew –
damning ourselves by the violence we do.

This is the way of a hypocrite race:
smirking and smiling, a pure, pious face –
mock, and dismiss, and perpetuate pain.
Why should we care if it’s stacked for our gain?
