詩 Gender Equality

Napkins and tampons
Euphemisms for things
I don't use

Plugs and covers
for orifices
I do not possess
Because it t'ain't there

Twenty-five cents each
A bargain, yes
but still a fortune
more than what I must pay

A quarter is a fortune
if you need one
and don't have it
A problem I'll never face

I can bequeath a fortune
to a needy stranger
for a pittance
Rescue a desperate maiden
from a bloody fate

I put a quarter
into each slot
but don't turn it

Buying protection

  1. honorable acts from a stranger
    such consideration tells of your soul

    oh the bloody fates I've endured
    but to find a quarter
    would be to erase them all

    thank you for sharing
