Love Letter to America 

America,

 

I loved you until my dying days,

loved the court I tried to sway

loved calling on Congress for equal pay 

 

loved winning six cases 

the court had no feminine faces 

no representation in powerful places 

 

loved my faith 

loved my children, writing essays when they misbehave 

loved my husband, we can now embrace 

 

loved the life I fully lived 

loved the remnants of democracy I leave behind 

 

From,

RBG’s Courageous Spirit 

 

No more letters, postal service in crisis 

Notorious ACB, deliberately degrading 

“Women support women,” a feminist line Republicans are co-opting 

 

But feminism isn’t about one woman’s success 

Especially one who works to oppress

 

Attacking a woman’s right to reproductive health 

When access already limited for those without wealth 

 

Feminism is about freeing all from discrimination and oppression

Trans women, poor women, immigrant women not just white women in a profession

 

8 days before the election:

Exposing Republicans’ hypocrisy 

Undermining our democracy
