(Book Excerpt 3) Single Mothers Speak on Patriarchy Ed. by Trista Hendren & Pat Daly

Angry Medusa

Nile Pierce

 

Those of us,

the single mothers,

The war veterans, battle worn,

the recipients of brainwash techniques

that’ve severed the heads of millions of Medusas

Since the dawn of time, or, more appropriately

Since the beginning of male-dominated everything

 

FUCK THEM and the Near Eastern horses they rode in on

With their hipster beards, birds in hand

Like the Goddess would accept an offering

From someone who rapes and kills her Daughters!

FUCK THEM and their 30-male party

FUCK THEM and their entitlement to our bodies

FUCK THEM and their hatred for Purity

And Life-Giving Power

FUCK THEM for thinking we are property

 

BITCH, YOU DON’T OWN ME

I AM MY OWN

I, AND A THOUSAND OTHER WOMEN WILL TAKE YOU DOWN

WITH FIERCE PHOENIX FIRES

AND SPIRITUAL MIDWIFERY AND HERBALISM

WE WILL INVOKE HECATE AND

SEND THE UNDERWORLD AFTER YOUR ASSES LOL

 

Hell yeah I’m motherfuckin angry

We got a right to be angry after thousands

Of years of your BULLSHIT.
