Lioness

She’s just a kid boarding a plane.
Trying to act tough but really afraid.
Off to bootcamp shouldn’t she feel proud?
Just keep your head down and try not to stand out in the crowd.
She dons the uniform and raises her right hand.
She swears to protect this beautiful land.
The land of the free and the home of the brave.
Maybe it’s just the security we crave?
The false sense of trust in a culture of lust that leads to her body being betrayed!
But did you say no?
Maybe you wanted it?
It’s all your own fault.
Who could she trust?
She woke up one day, 14 years later, and realized that she must take on rape culture.
After all it is the lioness that will move the vulture.
