AS OUR ANCESTORS DID

AS OUR ANCESTORS DID

“Let us cut to make her pretty.”

“Let us cut to make her narrow.”

“Let us cut to curb her instincts, and make her hallowed.”

“Let us cut because, well, because our ancestors did so.”

Those were their reasons.

So they cut, and watched me bleed,

Sowing the seed, they did, with a deft metal flicked,

And left an imprint,

For a lifetime of painful memories.

 

Protect the girl child, stop female genital mutilation!
