Uncomfortable

Sun, 04/08/2018 - 15:14 -- Ash17

I made one joke about periods,

And you said you didn't want to hear that stuff.

Said it made you uncomfortable.

Why should I care?

Shall I listen like you did,

When I asked you not to make rape jokes?

Or what about when you ignored me,

And made more sexist jokes?

Oh, but yes,

Let me not make a joke

About my bodily processes

Because it makes you uncomfortable.

This poem is about: 
Me
My community
My country
Our world
