That’s What She Said


A long time ago,

my Great Grandmother told me one day

that the only way women could express their rage

in a socially acceptable way

was to gather up their skirts and angrily flounce away.


When did that change, I asked her

when were women  allowed to get really mad?

And my Great Grandmother told me, without a smile

Lizzy Borden changed all of that.
