Poem: "Delight in Another"

This was the linkback perk poem for the January 5, 2021 Poetry Fishbowl, originally hosted by Dreamwidth user Dialecticdreamer.  It is spillover from the July 7, 2020 Poetry Fishbowl.  It was inspired by a prompt from kestrels_nest.  It also fills the "Antlers" square in my 7-1-20 card for the Winterfest in July Bingo.


"Delight in Another"

There has long been
a fine line between
witches and bitches,
just one letter and
a bit of religion
down the middle
of similar women.

So too the division
between lesbians
and rebels, women
discontent with being
nothing but accessories
on the elbows of men.

Notes:

On Feminism: "Feminism is a socialist, anti-family, political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians."
-- Pat Robertson
