Doth I protest too much?

It’s not about equality
it is not about choice.
It’s all about supremacy
of the female voice.
You won’t say we’re inferior
but keep demanding laws,
teach girls to define themselves
as prey,
turn victims out of us all.
It’s not about equality,
it’s never been about choice
you keep changing the rhetoric
have waves of thought
that don’t connect
and manipulate the voice-
you admit we’re weaker
in a physical sense
only to protect special rights
that give you more dividends.
You forget the rhetoric
tells us how to live
you keep screaming louder
like a tantrum throwing little kid.
Just say the words out loud
let the secrets out
women don’t want equality,
women don’t want equal rights
women want the dream;
the power, resources and lights-
they want to play at midnight
but keep the shadows out of sight.
