Her Story by Daniel Black

I am not a silent poet

Mankind isn’t kind,

Might womankind be kinder,

If all her kind were not confined,

To where history assigned her?

His story is episteme,*

But will her story ever be?

History’s not Herstory;

Her story’s still

A mystery… 

 

* Episteme: ‘The body of ideas that determine intellectually certain knowledge at any particular time’. Source: Visual Thesaurus 3.1, ThinkMap Inc, 2005.
