NaPoWriMo@ Day 22

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.
