Bamboozled No More! #metoo, Where Were You?!?

 

So angry, brought to tears.
You want to use my image
On your posters,
But refuse to see me>
Sisterhood usurped by fairy tales .
Sex trafficking, this time Asian women
In the local bar and grill.
Everyone knew.
the local wives were either pissed
Or happy that their husbands
Were any place but home.
No one said anything.
Innuedo.
Ihe guys were happy.
Everyone knew
But
Too much money.
Too little humanity.
The battle lines were suddenly unclear.
Trafficking is money!!!!
I don’t understand.
Where did the Feminists go?!?
Not their struggle?
Lesson learned.
#metoo sisterhood
Has elibility requirement
And some women are more equal than others.
Where, oh where did the Feminists go?
