Time to Wear Red

Can women now finally see
What labels and traditions
What leering doth breed?

Does finally this morning
Put an end to this club?
This subservient need to be
Handled to grub?

These organizations
These figureheads grey
These dinosaurs feeding
On youth as their prey

Their welcome is over
Their time and intent
Harmed and polluted
The beauty they bent

Hooray for this moment
This bright morning for all
Another poetic death
Felt deep in the heart

Light on the mind
Lightening the breathe
Women gained ground again
Time to wear red!
