the promise

 The Promise
 
  Since the women left
  Toilets are blocked, men pee
  Into kitchen sinks.
  Pot plants on sills have died 
  And gay blades live in fear of rape
  Shops have shut their doors
  Men sit in bars and sulk 
  When not shooting holes in the sky 
  If the women only will return 
  We will promise the world
  But only after they have cleaned up 
  Our clutter.
