Red Lipstick

Red lipstick blushing
Hair in brown waterfall waves
Jagged at the ends.

Back straight, look pretty,
Sit down, close mouth, lovely face
Painted doll for show

She kisses and tells,
Called out as ugly whore
Tears slide, heels in trash.

Stay single, risk fire
Prude, ugly, too fat, too thin,
Tears slide, heels in trash.

Changes come too slow
Clinging to black and white past
Women for beauty.

Workplace unequal
Paychecks, promotions unfair,
Ladies in heels walk.

Awareness spreading
Males and females in battle
Against age-old wall.

Stand straight in red heels,
Red lipstick pops in darkness,
Refuses to bow.
