Rape be not proud

Rape be not proud.
There is no power
In stripping the dignity of another.

Let’s reverse
The status quo,
And bare you naked.

Let’s see you
Cower
Like a coward.

Where will you
Hide
Your head?

Society
Is not your shield,
Not anymore.

We are done.
Our pain runs so deep…
It cannot be undone.

Do not blame the drugs
Or alcohol.
Do not call out what she wore…

This toxic cocktail of reasons
Smacks
Of stroking your male ego.

It is you
Who has sinned,
And you shall be shamed.

Forever
Behind bars
Is where you belong.

No exceptions.
No excuses.
No pleas for parole.

Brutes
Disguised in the clothing of men,
Cannot walk among us.

Let the real men
Rise
And share my message…

Rape be not proud.
There is no power
In stripping the dignity of another.
