Conservative Men (on seeing a photo on the all-male women’s health care committee 3/23/2017)

Conservative Men

We are men
Proud and strong
Head over heart
Wise and ordained

As is written
By us, for us
To our own
Greater-good glory

We hear all
In our voice
Deep and sonorous
True as trumpets

We see all
With our eyes
Piercing this life
Sharp as sabers

We feel all
That you need–
You need not
Doubt our decree

We need all
Only to do
What we proclaim
To be right

We are men
With a seat
At the elite
Raised royal dais

You are but
A shuddering shadow
Almost wholly hidden
By god-given glow
