Harassment

Today we sat in a bus
when some kids did harass
my Asian friend
until the end
when they got out.
I told them aloud
just leave us alone
but no they were stone-
deaf to our plea
wouldn’t listen to me.
Sure they were drunk
behaving like punk
but what could be seen was their set of mind
it clearly had been of a sexist kind
for them all women were objects to use
they never once in their minds would lose
a single thought on how we would feel
their hearts were made of stone and of steel
by today’s culture where a must
is lust
to be a man you have to show
sexual conquest fast not slow
Will there ever come a day
one I hope for and I pray
where women and men eye to eye would see
while they recognize each other’s humanity?
