Birth Rights

Our rights die at birth

for pro-lifers.

They were already lost

for the mother

at conception.

And in those post foetal

post natal

moments of freedom

when we move


from the womb,

our rights diminish.

They say that life

must be lived

according to

the laws of God,

laws written

and dispatched

to the believers

in patriarchal dreams

of regression 

to an earlier age.

Break those laws

and they’re back

with interest

to make you pay

but only 

if you’re female,

the men go free

say pro-lifers.
