Thought today I would write a poem using another source, and since seeing the Wonder Woman event, where suffragettes smashed the glass of thirteen artworks, I thought I’d try and find accounts of militant suffragette action. I found this site and this one, and have stolen lines from the first site to make this piece.
two broken hat-pins, a hairpin, and
a galosh indisputably feminine.
golf greens all over the country scraped
and burnt with acid.
Old ladies applied for gun licences
to terrify the authorities.
It broke the glass with a loud report,
passing through it as easily
as though it had been butter.
