Rape, An Indignity To Womanhood

R ita was deflowered
A gainst her will. Ravished. Her
P light, a torture, that
E nsued a trauma

I t is a degrading abomination to
S exual assault a women

A manifestation of madness. For
N o rational man shall intend this atrocity

I t is despicable and selfish to rape
N o to rape! It's our plea
D iscontinue sexual assault
I t is a foe of a happy womanhood
G uardians, and parents, do
N ot assault your wards and off springs
I t is an indignity to woman hood
T reat women with worthiness
Y earningly, we reiterate

T ime records myriad cases
O f sexual assault

W hen shall it go extinct?
O r die for eternity?
M any a women
A re with a trauma
N ote,
H ousing headaches and fear 
O h, Alas!
O h! The pain, how
D espicable rape is!

    ''When shall it go extinct or die eternaly'' a heart-wrenching question to humanity. Keep hitting the ills of the society, sister.

    Great poem/message! But I feel 'SATIRE' not to be the correct catagory... perhaps 'SAD' and 'IRE' would be more appropriate... Terry

    I get the message here, and you are right, rape is deplorable, i think you need to look at the category you have placed this poem under, cause it certainly is not 'Satire'
