soliders

soliders
warriors
boys
men
penises between legs
rifles in hands
pride in hearts
but grandfather had five 
granddaughters
breasts
vaginas
childbearing hips
had them marked
as failures
since the days of birth
still they rose
with the sun
with their grandfather’s 
bark in their ears
be better 
be more
be men
he never let up
they may have been
girls
to the eyes of the world
but to grandfather
they were his
girls
and God be damned
if the rest of the world
didn’t see
boys
warriors
soliders
