Sonnet: Woman on Man

Could God have made men less like animals,
Or not bidden the females to clean the cave?
The Bible tells us to cook the victuals,
And obey our dear Masters as they rave.
Bronze Age called a harem respectable,
Even today in Saudi Arabia,
Women have to be undetectable.
God bless America, for we are free,
To own the property, not to be it.
I would rather be ailing and lonely
Than be regarded as a piece of shit.
My only fault was to choose the wrong man,
I’ll try again, if Fate says that I can.
by Susan B. Reinhard
