Answers on a postcard

Answers on a postcard

I am sorry sisters
I find it sinister
that you want the right
to be loutish and badmouth
a tennis umpire
because your male
counterparts do the same.
When you raise banners
demanding equality
are you saying that
to be equal to them
you are prepared
to sanction bad manners?
