A Female To Be

by Philip F De Pinto

You being human
A female to be specific
Have the luxury of never
Having to explain to an animal
A male to be specific
Why you are kicking him
Whipping him
Setting up a trap for him
Shooting him
Killing him
And eating him
And the piece de resistance
Of making habitation
Of his skin

No woman
A man doesn't
Require explaining
Given he understands
He's been created
For this specific reason
To be kicked and whipped
And trapped and hunted
And shot and killed and eaten
And the piece de resistance
Of having his sheared pelt worn
To bay the chill
Of some former love
A dog to be specific
Who left her in the cold
