International Women’s Day

A day of celebration for all the women in the world.

The time has come to beat the drum and shout for what we stand for.

A fairer world of love and equality, for now and years to come.

Mothers, sisters, grannies, aunties and countless more abound,

Take to the streets and stamp your feet making phenomenal noise.

Not pointing fingers, raising fists, in solidarity.

Women’s rights the world over, the fight is underway.

No need for comparison, as our boyish ego is wont to do,

Just stand behind and cheer on loud, our sisters in the purple.

A fairer world for you, is a fairer world for all.

So let’s get behind each other and stand up fucking tall!
