Poem – Gender Inequality (By Donal Mahoney)

The uncommon
is common
in America today.

Not that there’s anything
wrong with that, Seinfeld
might have said to George

had they seen the latest
Glamour Magazine
naming Caitlyn Jenner

Woman of the Year.
The public seems to agree.
No placards hit the air.

but Caitlyn has to stand
and spray what other
women sit to tinkle.
