Any and all attempts

Any and all attempts
to subvert the patriarchy
will result in not a quick death
but a slow torture
by injection.
You will have your self worth replaced
by airbrushed pictures of perfection
and you will have your self love replaced
by gluten free
sugar free
fat free
free range
and you will have your self confidence replaced
by a younger model
with fewer miles
and more features.

Have a nice day!

About Catastrophe Jones

Wretched word-goblin with enough interests that they're not particularly awesome at any of them. Terrible self-esteem and yet prone to hilarious bouts of hubris. Full of the worst flavors of self-awareness. Owns far too many craft supplies. Will sing to you at the slightest provocation.
