Medical Misogyny (a Poem from a Reader)

Medical Misogeny is killing the girls who climb trees.                                      
 
"Academics"

"Therapists"

and "Medical Doctors"

market and sell their wares and services,
lecture and teach
that the girl who climbs trees is broken
and must be fixed.

The reasoning :

There is no fall
if there is no climb.
Just pull her from the tree
Pick her early before she blossoms

before she learns
that she has power beyond any strength that can come in a bottle
or be administered by syringe.
