Voice like hard honey

Soothing electric airways

Burnt tempers and concrete steps

Sing to me

Taste names rolled through tough teeth and tongue

Not stopping at my next destination but pushing

On and on and on and…

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.

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…
