Artemis the Feminist

Feminist or Feminazi? 

No one knows the answer. 

For the truth is, no one bothered to look any deeper.

Instead, they look at her and smirk and sneer in disgust,

Unaware of her stature as a high-ranking goddess. 

When they make their foolish statements, 

Her brother whispers in her ear, 

"They know not, sister, what they should truly fear."

His words temper her anger, but only for so long, 

before her old bow soon has an new arrow drawn. 

Her threats only make them laugh, 

"So pathetic, she is", 

"What a stupid little feminist."

She screams at them in her head, 

only hoping for independence, 

and has been taunted and mocked

ever since.
