Triggered Online Feminists

Why are you so mad? Don’t you realize?

This is just a comment, a tweet, a post.

The only trigger in real life;

Is the acid meant to melt away your face

The punch that lands on your arm during a domestic squabble

The book replaced with a child’s cradle

The degree on your shelf from which you sweep away cobwebs

And what you feel walking down the street

The cold trickle of dread

That you might make it to late night news.

So relax, online feminist.

It’s just a joke.

It’s not like it can happen in real life anytime soon.
