White Slavery [Poem] by Michael Marrotti


Capitalistic dreams
A living, breathing
She’s a good listener
I’m an eloquent speaker
What else
is there to say
Besides obey
Succumb to me
Be one of my many
Only the submissive
need apply
I’m an idealist
Use the stairs
to reach my standard
I drew the line
In which you know
your place
Don’t cross me
Rules to live by
Here’s the proclamation
Your rights
have been revoked
I’ll forever prevail
Sexually, emotionally
I’m inside your vagina
Another credit card
Squirming around
in your thoughts
I’m your religion
An obsession
You’re subservient
to my demands
I’m going shopping
White slavery
