Supreme Lies

They swore and they lied

Women’s rights are tied

To our weak democracy

To our inevitable legacy

Women are no fools

Women are indispensable tools

For the betterment of today’s society

Without women, there is no life

Supreme Court’s obvious gaffe

Affects and hurts men and women

Women and girls are human

Women and girls know what’s right

For themselves. Women must fight

For their rights. Men must support

Women’s rights which equal to human’s rights

Men and women must actively take part

Of the daily battles, the quintessential fights

Let’s remain proactive and vigilant

To expose and to defeat the supreme lies

Once we’re united, we will be triumphant

We will overcome because we are wise

Let’s focus on the main prize

Which is freedom for our allies:

Men, women and children

Let’s say again and again

That we, men and women, will not run

When our human rights are in jeopardy

In danger. We all want a better society

Women or human rights cannot be denied

They swore and they lied

We must fight for our pride.
