A #MeToo Poem by Rita Pomade

Lover mother chattel wife

Ball buster parasite

So many roles, none’s my name

Fingered at birth for the patriarch game

Courtesan whore harlot witch

Slut virago bimbo bitch

Skenk cunt cockteaser cow

Hag harridan battle axe sow

Each word used to denigrate

Each one says I’m second-rate

Burned stoned buried at birth

Aborted in places for having no worth

Adored as goddess, worshiped as saint

Promoted as symbol, diminished in name

Victims of rape subject to shame

Girls defaced, their genitals maimed

Wherever a woman is being debased

A part of me is also erased

It’s time to redress the untenable sham

I take back my power:

SEE ME AS I AM
