That Was the MUSE That Was

Ode to Germaine

People with willies
rule by divide,
my feminist friend
Germaine Greer sighed,
mentoring me
my one-woman guide:

So many with willies,
I tested and tried,
occasionally one
will take your side -

one in a million;
most will be snide -
slate you and hate you
and rule by divide.
