Poem written by an 11 year old Afghan girl
This poem was recorded in a NYT magazine article about female underground poetry groups in Afghanistan. An amazing article about the ways in which women are using a traditional two line poetry form to express their resistance to male oppression, their feelings about love (considered blasphemous).
You won’t allow me to go to school.
I won’t become a doctor.
One day you will be sick.
Ladies and gentleman, the most pathetic reaction in horror movie history
The longer you look at it the funnier it gets
It looks like it should be in High School Musical
I’m scared, yet fabulous
i just figured out the perfect murder
kill someone and bury them in their own garden
that way if the police find them they’ll think it was a suicide
#welp looks like the victim committed suicide and promptly buried themselves in their garden #how considerate of them
