True Regime Change


"I am speaking of true
regime change.

Where women RISE
to take their place
en masse
at the helm
of earth’s frail and failing ship;

where each thousand years
of our silence
is examined
with regret,
and the cruel manner in which our values
of compassion and kindness
have been ridiculed
and suppressed
brought to bear on the disaster
of the present time."

from "Democratic Womanism - A Woman's Vision" - A Poem by Alice Walker
"Birthquake" by Elisabeth Slettnes
