Romeo Is Banished

Romeo is banished

the door to love is closed,

Capulets around the world

are celebrating, to justify

locking up their daughters.


But those girls are on the march

now, choosing their own clothes,

no longer dressed in garments

of contrition.


These Juliets are just not buying

the deceit, or the lying,

and they are certainly not dying

for love unrequited, unreturned.


It’s an age thing, it’s a rage thing,

it’s a tearing up the script thing,

to change the story,

change the ending,

#julietlives is trending

as they tweet,

“Hey, there are gonna be some changes

around here.”
