“Survival of the Prettiest”

Judged by a scale
and objectified for bets,
treated like a prize
that every man gets.

It’s not safe to wear skirts.
Its not safe to be alone.
Can we call this living?
Or hiding under a stone?

Trying to be attractive,
Trying to be the skinniest,
No, this is not living,
It’s survival of the prettiest.
