If Women Were Presidents by Madie Howard

Incredulous anger would arise
from those who claim they see with God’s eyes
and use biblical passages as their jury
as to why they act with such hate and fury.
A woman violated is promptly slated:
“that slut – she should keep her legs shut!”

Inexplicably blamed for a culture of smut.

Sexualising women as unthinking china dolls
would be replaced in favour of an equal payroll,
So with un-manicured hands and open minds
children will uncover historic finds
of a depressing, repressive time
when feminism still a dirty word
and their mothers and sisters could never be heard,
when a same-sex couple could not kiss nor love
under the commands of the big man above.

The life they know will be fair and understanding
The plight for equality is necessary, not demanding,
No longer will we all have to sit down and shut up
Patriarchal doctrine would have run out of luck.
