The Women Of Afghanistan - Poem by Cretan Maineiac
Some of them remember Soviet
strafing, an updated
Blitzkrieg menace, followed by
Taliban 'liberation', from foxhole/tomato plant
provisions, up to
a flameless pit & burqa'd subjugation.
Up from the pit & into the
kitchen, the street &
schools, but conspicuously absent from
the nightly news, the
Oprah's book club. More
savvy than a party
than a gold medalist, stomping barefoot on
spiders, rats & epidemic
no match for
that burqa called studio censorship.
