A Somewhat Sonnet to Gynarchy

I’m living my life in the world of women

Blasting through the patriarchy

Of my own mind

Imprinted from daddy


From the day I was born

Stuffed into pink

Bows and white gloves


Bloodied knuckles

Seeping through

I will not make the brothers’ sandwiches

And I am not made for


Secretarial school

Screw that rule
