The “What’s more of a pain than period pain?” Poem

Why can’t we just talk about it?
I can feel your cheeks burning
from embarrassment from wanting
to change the subject. That’s okay,
turn your eye. Skip this poem.
It’s about period pains, after all.
The belly aches, the squeamish
blood, it’s a horror movie that
you cannot escape even if you
don’t like blood.
Better go to the shop and BUY
some tampons. Or towels.
Sorry, for the capital letters.
It’s just that we are buying into
capitalism and consumerism
because of our bodily functions.
Free condoms are available, though.
Why not free tampons? Free towels?
I suppose that’s more of a pain
than period pain. The cashier
gave me my change back, but I’ll
be back next month, and the next.
You can skip this poem, now.

      1. Yeah it annoys me so much that women have to buy pads/tampons even though we have no control over our periods! Hahah yeah I usually get a little pissed off too and ranting always helps 😝
