A Wresting Hymn

So Sammi Cox’s  Weekend Writing Prompt #34 was to write either a Happy Christmas or a Horror Christmas story in 250 words, or write a poem using the title or the first line of a Christmas carol. I have desecrated a Christmas hymn and written a horror poem, inspired by so many recent headlines. 

 

God! Rest, you hairy “gentlemen”. Keep your hands away.

We are in the workplace and anywhere we want, these days.

Remember, your mother’s a woman too, think what she would say.

Women are not playthings or toys

Playthings or toys

Women are not playthings or toys

 

You might choke on your excuses, they’re sounding pretty lame.

And don’t you blame the victim for bringing down your name.

What happened to your decency, haven’t you any shame?

Women are not playthings or toys

Playthings or toys

Women are not playthings or toys

 

Hypocritical Christians, sinning in God’s sight.

Will there ever be a time when men will do what’s right?

When women won’t be fearful, won’t need take back the night?

Women are not playthings or toys

Playthings or toys

Women are not playthings or toys

 

Everyone’s behavior is a choice they choose.

No means no, it always has, accept when you’re refused.

Choose to behave rightly, stop the misogynist abuse.

Women are not playthings or toys

Playthings or toys

Women are not playthings or toys.
