An Unfair Sisterhood

Find your place

take what they give you
don’t make a fuss
do as they say
not as they do
follow their rules

keep your gaze down
don’t draw attention
steer clear of conflict debate or dissension
you’re here for your children
and nothing more
as you peek through your burka
you know the score
