A Modern Woman
First I was a Mother. 1
Then I was an Old womb tied up in ropes.
Then I was sold to give a Dopamine rush,
to the man with the whip to make by back blush.
Then I was an Evangelist, oh freedom thou is near! 5
Then I was a Reminder, cover me up!
Then I was a Nobody, a big, black
Then I was a Woman,
Still very Obsolete. 10
Manning myself with knowledge,
Arming peers with poetic liberation.
Never shall my weapon be taken from me!
