SICKNESS

What kind of sick coward strikes a woman?
How could a man possibly think it’s right
To push her around? It takes a weak man,
A pitiful man–to turn any fight

With a woman to violence. You can’t
Call yourself a man at all if you hit
A woman even once. Even an errant
Swing is unacceptable. You’re a shit,

You’re pathetic, you’re insecure. But what
Is even lower is the strange, sad fact
That our society condones it–that
Most legal systems ignore the cruel act

Of forcing woman into fearful cower,
While men find reward in a show of pow’r.
