Not a Picnic

Holding tight to
her teddy bear
on a flight through
here to somewhere
as nightmares play
both night and day
to form her norm

She Must Be Mad

It’s about her
the young woman
who caused a stir
by getting in.
She thought there’d be
equality.
Poor soul. How drôle.

Ha’sonnet title inspired by the 31 August daily prompt at the Brave & Reckless blog and based on the title of a seminal feminist book ‘she must be mad’ by Charly Cox.

Added title to a ha’sonnet I had written last year because the prompt immediately jumped out as a better fit than the title options I’d come up with.
