We Regress Into a Harrowing World
by Dakota Sebourn
Sorrow seeps from my bones
as my sisters across the nation
cry out in pain (control the non-men)
I am beholden to my rage
and six cis religious bigots
are coming for me next (control the non-men)
We are a commodity
to be dealt with
as the cis man sees fit (control the non-men)
Let there be no peace for our oppressors,
for dead men reap no wombs.
