A Kinda Life, Poetry by Denise Stephani

Genre: Girl Power!, History, Life

A Kinda Life
by Denise Stephani

http://www.denisestephani.com

For Malala who was shot in the head and left for dead & all the women and girls in the Gender War

Has life been kind to you? He said
As her heart stopped and bled
She sighed and shook her head
If I could’ve I would’ve fled

Life sucks for us ducks
What’s bad for the goose is good for the gander
Life is angled for the power of the boys den
It’s hard to be the shoved out hen

If Sallys had equal money
Blokes would lose the power to control the honey
If Janes could have equal learning
Guys would feel their egos burning

For thousands of years they have kept us down
They have snatched and held the gender crown
Marys have smiled behind a tear and frown
But now us Jennies must turn it all upside-down

Has life been kind to you? He queried
You look so tired and wearied
No, she stuttered
To see it you must be kind
Most Johns push our struggles from their mind.

When we talk of rape
They say ‘Peel a grape’
When we say that we’ve been battered
They say: To listen would leave me shattered
Man-made Sheila pain
Is silenced for their gain

Has life been kind to you? She said
I wish I could lie inside your bed
And have your life instead
Not be the prey – who is left for dead

Life sucks for us ducks
What’s bad for the goose is good for the gander
Life is angled for the power of the boys den
It’s hard to be the shoved out hen

For thousands of years they have kept us down
And they have snatched and held the gender crown
Marys have smiled behind a tear and frown
But now us Jennies must turn it all upside-down

Has life been kind to you? He asked
Has life been kind?

Lindow Man, Poetry by Kathleen McCoy

Genre: Survival, Life, Society, History, Biography

Lindow Man
by Kathleen McCoy

100 B.C. – 100 A.D.
Discovered in 1984 in the Lindow Moss Bog near Manchester and conveyed to The British Museum

Starlight directly entered
the right side of his skull.

He has been left with half
of one right leg. The other

is just gone. Yet time has kept
his speechless lips full,

writ large upon his smashed
and slanted leather face—

clubbed twice at twenty-five, then
strangled, throat slashed.

Did they come in their Druidic
hoods as friends, with their wily

eyes, their toasting silver
cup of mistletoe that steamed,

chimed, swirled, like a belly dancer
whose iron sword

glistened in moonlight? The savage
bells rang for centuries. And all of this

to keep the trees in flower,
the fields rife with grain and honey.

The ridiculous bogged down,
preserved in peat, half a man

who lived half a life
with a half-life of two millennia,

the pounding in the chest
of the wolf’s next meal.

fine,rain,storm,heat,cold,
by Yamamoto Tatsuo

and the days of frightening disaster

survived and lived and survived

from parent to child

from when we were in the sea

hundreds of millions of years

time of eternity

ancestors have been imparting and imparted as far as we are

but

still we do not know who we are

still we do not know what we are heading for

still we do not know why we are here

still we do not know at all what is the god

THE QUEST, Poetry by Tabitha Baumander

Genre: Rhyme, History, Society, Drama

THE QUEST
by Tabitha Baumander

Through the marvellous mists of midnight.

    Like a wondrous tale of yore.
    Came the merchant with his wagon.
    Came the soldiers.
    Came the poor.
    I asked them why they wandered,
    Through the dark and dangerous night?
    What profit did it bring them?
    This strangely moon bathed flight.

We’re searching for a dragon.
A sorcerer, a king.
Of course they’d never seen it.
It could be anything.

    It is always just beyond us.
    Claimed a sprightly moon fed boy.
    I’ve heard that when we find it,
    The sun will cry with joy!
    With a silent smile I bade,
    “Good luck upon your quest.”
    Then turned my back upon them,
    And went home to my own rest.

Away the company wandered.
From dell to misty dell.
I don’t think they’ll ever find it.
And perhaps it’s just as well
