While Being Raped

       While Being Raped

While being raped yell fire!
Neighbors fear for their property not you
Remember firemen have axes also  
To chop his thingy in two

While being raped defecate and urinate
To break the mood
Remember who is being rude
This is not a date

While being raped bring out the mace
Spray it in the eyes and face
Become an animal
An animal is attacking you

While being raped have a conversation
“Mr. Rapist?”  “Do you have VD too?”
He’ll get the clue
Ask him if he’s using rubbers

While being raped the one real truth to know
Rape is not a sex or passion crime 
Clearly it’s an act of violence, brutality and power
From cowards with their malice

While being raped it wouldn't hurt to use your keys
Have some expertise in self protection
It only takes a moment, a maneuver to fight & defeat
To find release and flee

While being raped, change into another person
You simply can’t be sweet
You are fighting for your life
Become a monster.   That monster needs fear to feed

While being raped, save your prayers for later
Drink at home when possible 
Look alive when you’re outside with a friend by your side
Acknowledge there is evil.   Rape is not the only crime

        *A note to readers: Sadly, the judicial system and law enforcement
          still define rape as a sex crime.  It is not.  It is the opposite.  Laws
          have to be changed to designate it and define it for what it truly is;
          a hate crime, a human rights violation, an act of brutality and 
          violence.    My deepest apologies go out to those of you who may 
          have been victimized by this horrific crime.  Thank you for reading 
          my works.   Earl
