We Are Nasty Women

If Mr. Trump insists on labeling intelligent, outspoken women as 'Nasty', then I say - Long Live Nasty Women!

We are Nasty Women When we hear haughtiness, we name it When we see bullying, we blame it We are Nasty Women We do not daintily defer For selfish whims of a saboteur We will not walk three steps behind We will not sheathe our sharpened minds We are logic's clear eloquence We are unyielding consequence We are Nasty Women We are out of many, one We are the soldiers of every war We are astronauts and commodores We are the activists of plundered Earth We are the executives who expect our worth We are the advocates of facts, unsuppressed As we walk the corridors of Congress And we are far from done. 6/06/19 Poem of the Day June 8th, 2019

Wonderful write, Michelle, though I would say "nasty", (in this case), equals "strong, confident, appealing" ... congrats on a well-deserved Poem of the Day! Blessings! :-) <3 (You might like "To Speak of Women" that I wrote in my first year here).

Straight to my FAVs list. I just have one criticism. Cannot you add about 10 more verses? Or make this into a book for the thinkers who can SEE what is happening?

If you like this, I recommend you google the poem 'I am a Nasty Woman' by a 19 year old named Nina Donovan - it blew me away!
