Artistic Minds. Dangerous Coats⁠ by Sharon Owens

❊ Poem – Dangerous Coats⁠

❛ Someone clever once said⁠

Women were not allowed pockets⁠

In case they carried leaflets⁠

To spread sedition⁠

Which means unrest⁠

To you & me⁠

A grandiose word⁠

For common sense⁠




So ladies, start sewing⁠

Dangerous coats⁠

Made of pockets & sedition ❜⁠

By Sharon Owens⁠
