Silent Submission

We keep their secrets.

Their intrusions,
fumblings and
violations.

Because no-one
will believe us.

They will plead
provocation or
invitation.

Innocence for sure.

Our reputation
they will damage.

Composure wreck.
Confidence crush.

Credibility
dismiss. Sanity
dispute.

Women’s liberation
deride and curtail.
