Poem - Not Just for Sex

The poem “Not Just for Sex” is about the ugly side of bypassed consent. The perpetrators would not accept the same committed against themselves or the ones they care about.

Not Just for Sex

Consent is not just for sex
when intrusion is not checked
pushing past the very walls
meant to protect integrity

at the risk of sanity
a sad victim of disrespect
what’s considered mildly rude
moves into realms that abuse

these boundaries set by privileged folk
from the place of power’s throne
might made right by consequence
of desires that few admit

while protections are instilled
enjoyed within their four walls
then forgotten when applied
to the ones found outside

the very same would be condemned
when meted out to their clan
of violators without regard
for consent outside of bounds.
