Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

Poison
In my veins 
Politics
Dirty tricks
Cannibals
At my flesh pick
Vultures
In corporate suits
With rancid breath
And clammy hands
Grab my ass
Harrass
My silent screams
Unheard
Through the maze
Of formal complaints
In shock and dazed
I chase the shadows
Of human rights
Betrayed
ENRAGED
Wounded spirit
Tired feet
No screams
My lips sealed
The CEO free
While I can't breathe

It has a name
This
PLAGUE
Say it
Out loud
Not all who break
Were physically raped
For some the exploitation
Was mental
Emotional 
Some were grabbed
Groped
Harassed
A word 
Remark 
Or two
Demeans
Invades
MY SPACE

IT HAS A NAME
This plague
Say it
Out loud
