Politics

by Vikki Owens

republicans want control of my uterus.
class warfare they cry
as they tell me im lazy and asking for handouts
while i grind away my week at eight dollars an hour
and worry whether the hours worth of wages
will give me a quarter tank of gas,
enough to get to work and back.
of course, asking for a handout means im a drug addict,
they want me to submit to drug tests
to see if im eligible for benefits.
their rhetoric says the nazi's want them to support
my many children, of which i have none,
but ethics say i cant use contraceptives
or shudder-to-think it, terminate.
and mitt romney pays 13% taxes on billions.
