I don’t believe the Earth is flat,
That’s not an opinion
That is a fact.
I don’t believe I must always be kind
Or if I walk home alone
That all will be fine
I don’t believe men when they say,
Leaning out of their cars
“I’ve got sweets! Come and play!”
I don’t believe they just want to pee
When slurs, threats and abuse
Are hurled at me.
I don’t believe he’s won 1st place
I see her bumped down to 2nd
That look on her face.
I don’t believe what men say
I look at what they do
Day after day.
Mutilated clits. Women getting hit.
Losing our jobs, scarring our kids.
Dead women daily.
Not an eyelid bats.
Why do you believe them?
Answer me that.
