Poetry: “Free choice”

Thought about this for a bit, particularly when it some to us women.

***~***~***~***

Free choice

Is free choice
An illusion?
With men in suits
Dictating the terms
With pens
On crisp, white paper
Words that limit
And decide
Lives in ways
Not always obvious
Planting seeds in minds
Steering thoughts
And behaviors
What becomes
Moral good
And bad
What is proper
And unwanted
Women chained then
Between too much
Or too little
Not enough
To pass
Though that keyhole
Made by men
In fine suits
Patting their backs
While others
Do their dirty work
For them
