Their Place (Is At The Front Of It All).

Of course,


should know their place,

it is surely to be expected

that they should be at the front

leading the way,

fighting harder, fighting all the way,

that they should be heard as equals,

that they should not take misogyny

in any form

and that they should not live in fear

of the fist,

of the male,

of the world’s

preconceived ideas

handed down by male privilege,

surely they should know their place

and revel in being




the ones we turn to

when we are selves

feel low.
