Equality

Let our girls have toy soldiers

so they grow up

loving war

as much as their brothers.

Give Barbie a rifle

and get her all dolled up

in camouflage and combat boots

Let Mattel recruit

let Barbie shoot targets

on a screen

our girls will want to fly drones

by the time they’re tweens

give them toy tanks

and teach them all about rank

tell em Gloria Steinem

would want a green beret

let them know

its equal rights

and equal pay!!!

Don’t tell them

that one in three

women in the military

will be sexually assaulted.

 

Tell them they’ll be heroes

and get medals

just like the guys

let them know

it doesn’t matter

when a civilian dies,

it happens all the time,

it’s called ‘collateral damage’.

 

Buy our girls ‘Call Of Duty’

let them know

it is their duty

to serve their nation…

they’ll get to travel overseas

sort of like a vacation…

 

Don’t tell them

that we created

the terrorists they’ll fight

tell ’em Uncle Sam

is always right

 

About soitgoes1984

I was born and raised on land stolen from the Pocumtuc. I now live on a small island in the middle of the Pacific ocean, on land that was stolen more recently, from the Hawaiians. I am addict, struggling to kick the habit of fossil fuel.
