The Empress’s Clothes

A woman’s geography
Is considered pornography
So everywhere that she goes.

She’s constrained unto modesty
So many times all that we see
Is face, fingers, hands, arms and toes.

A blatant indignity
At least at the beach where might be-
A veritable lacking of robes.

Where once that ‘don’t look at me’
Embraces hypocrisy-
Most everything hidden now shows.

It would seem then inequity
Or at least rank false piety…
For the empress sometimes has clothes.
