Ignite The Egalitarian Spark

Dear girl
There are misogynists
Down the street
Ignore their calls
You are more
Than the lies
They speak
They
Are only as strong
As you allow them
To be
Dear girl
Remember old Betsy
In the drawer
Her egalitarian spark
Will light your way
To
Fight
Against chauvinism’s
Rein

This is a poem I wrote for VSS365 on Twitter today. The word prompt was dear.
