Crones by Giselle Marks

I don’t like the word crone

I doubt that I am alone

In feeling women should never


Be called by it

It is not a matter of if, the cap fit

-ted but that men when old

and grumpy are not called scold.

Cantankerous may be true

But Crones are ugly through and through.

So don’t objectify us

Crone is almost a cuss

word. And we should fight

for the right

to be treated with respect.

So crone deserves neglect

to protect

and redirect

the misogyny of mankind

because it is cruel and unkind.
