The dragging skin and bloodied gravel
Revealing naught beneath
Revolting tongue of carrion barbs
Split on broken teeth

Emasculate the feeble terror that seeps from every pore
Re-educate the red blooded waste in the name of each and every "whore"

Curse this nauseous indoctrination
We see through the fecal smiles
Redemption through fettered castration
A fraying noose to stem the tide

With gleeful anticipation, we watch the rotten writhe
After the last putrid breath, we toss the heads aside
Quartered, every worthless carcass, to sit upon the stake
A vital lesson learnt, both birthed and passed in hate

We live in a country where women are never truly safe. A country where one in five women have been the victim of a sexual assault, often before the age of sixteen. A fraction of the reported cases result in conviction, with countless women suffering in silence. This rape culture starts and ends with you and I. You owe it to your mothers, daughters, sisters and lovers to smash this culture with an open hand and iron fist. With an open hand and an iron fucking fist.
