All (wo)men are created equal

You say
that women never march
on your office,
and demand more pay.

You say it’s just the men,
that you hear it from them
time and time again.

I say why wait to be asked?
Get off your white, well-paid
ass and celebrate these fine
let them have better pay-days.
The BBC and their wages are locked
tight to
the middle ages.
Just because they wear a dress
doesn’t mean
you should value them less…


Nearly there

You think about writing
But an empty pen feels cold
and frightening
Better to leave it to another day
with stronger words and
more to say
