Erroneous Wisdom - KH
Katherine said, but her actions betrayed…
Was beauty the means of her wedded dismay?
Or was plainness her reason to be mistress?
Women! Rise beyond what's always been professed!
Hepburn, she kowtowed to the mores of men...
Denigrating her sex, she was no Sophia Loren
Shelved, beauty an objectified trophy’s emptiness
Women! Rise above what’s always been professed!
