The Bravery of Dr Ford by Kitty Kat

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.
