China: A Feminist Perspective

China: A Feminist Perspective


Polished Emulation of “Capping Rhymes With Sir Shih Ching From Sun’s Root Land”:

Don’t tell me women

Are not the stuff of heroes,

We are the daughters to the fathers

and mothers to the sons.

Our DNA engraved with

the wild women you left out of history books,

And of the ashes from the witches you burned.

Our treasure buried under islands,

all gems, all dazzling with moonlight.

I grieve to think of the girls,

lured in by boys who taste like rain

and feel like silk;

the ones that leave her

feeling like regret. So tell me;

how could you spend your days in this motherland

knowing that women,

are the stuff of heroes.
