Paint your claws in pretty pales and make sure they are pink.
Chew away your body mass and make your spirit shrink.
Tease your fur to glossy curls, your stag will go beserka,
But don't forget to do it all from underneath a berka.
I didn't mean to spell burka wrong, I didn't even think to check. Doh...
Anyway the poem is about how women are expected to suppress all animalistic desires such as eating, sex and allowing their spirits to dance. I choose
to use the term burka as it represents some of the worst oppressions I could think of.
It's also about how society pressures young women to dress and look a certain way and are then told by the same society that if they get attacked
it's their own fault for looking the way they do.
