The Bravery of Dr Ford by Kitty Kat
It happened once, it was enough
It never goes, the scars so rough.
The laughter rang above it all
Even now my skin will crawl.
I stood before the old, white men
Told my tale and remembered then.
They sneered and smirked, those good old boys
Yet there I showed such grace and poise.
Held up my hand to testify
For every woman I can but try.
Come what may we will prevail
I have no doubt, we cannot fail.
Vote them out, persistence matters
Misogyny, abuse in tatters.
‘Me too!’ the cry, the shout, the yell
Our voices loud, they’ll never quell.
