I Build Women Up

Here are the children
who cry for their mothers
locked up by a man
endorsed by the woman
who wanders the house
that Trump built

Here's the machinist
who needs three jobs
to feed her child
employed by the woman
who wanders the house
that Trump built

Here lies the activist
who lost her life
resisting the racist
supremicist vice
dismissed by the man
and shrugged off by the daughter
that complicit woman
who wanders the house
that Trump built
