Poetic reflections on today's news...
American uteruses lament
removal of freedom of choice
Liberty has now become infertile
Sperm remains potent yet
Droves gather to champion Roe
Fourteenth in the distance
overshadowed by supreme
Prolapse is the resulting condition
A time to mourn for some
A time to rejoice for others
Half a century battle overturned
Auguries of despair on the rise
Precedent set and inequities thrive
