Women are Useless is a Lie


Andrea Griffin, Student Contributor

The following is a “Reverse Poem.” Read it from top to bottom, and then read it from bottom to top. It will have two different meanings.

Women are useless

I refuse to believe that

We can change anything

This may be a shock, but

“Women are bold and amazing”

is a lie, and

“Women are worthless”

So in thirty years I will tell my children

Women mean nothing.

Once upon a time

People marry for love

But this will not be true in their era

This is a quick fix

Experts tell me

Thirty years from now, I will be celebrating

the 10th anniversary of my divorce

I do not concede that

I will live in a country of love

In the future,

Divorce will be the norm

No longer will it be said that

he went to Jared’s

It will be evident that

he married for her looks

it is foolish to presume that

There is hope
