"We, Too"

Cowley Student (Vol. 8: 2019)

We, too, sing America.

 

We are the bright sisters.

They hire us to do the same job as men

As they pay us a fractionable percent

But we stay

And we learn

And we work

 

Someday,

We will be equal

When judgement comes

It will be them

Who is viewed

In a negative light

When.

 

No matter,

They’ll see how much

We are worth

 

We, too, are America.
