Second Class Citizen

Andy T poem from anarcho punk zine Anathema, first issue, 1982.

Man and the Second Class Citizen

Have you seen the big man flexing his tattooes?
as he drools over page three he’s thinking of you
he thinks of every woman as his sexual slave
MR IRRESISTABLE who never has to pay
girl hitch hiker needs a lift for fifty miles
MR LORRY DRIVER picks her up with evil smile
the girl feels nervous when he starts to stare
she screams when he stops and asks for the fare
he beats her round the head rips off her clothes
RAPES her twice then breaks her nose
throws her out the door she falls down in a field
big man drives away to get his next meal
transport cafe rapists talk about their day
laughing at the women they used on the way
LOOKING AT HIS MUSCLES THE BIG MAN SMILES
TWENTY FIVE MILES AWAY A BROKEN BODY LIES……..

Andy T, Nov 81
