Whatever she tells it to.

Power Poetry of Women in the new millennium.
Even zucchinis are up for grabs.

The good men today are all shamed, ashamed
Of yesterday, when they weren’t here to do anything shameful.

The good men today are all missed, remiss
About yesterday, when they weren’t here to be missed for.

The good men today, mourn for this day, when they were here today
Missed, but remiss, because they were filled with shame.

The good men today have nothing-
But everything- to say- and can’t say it.

Great-Great-Grandpa left good men with impotent ink.
