Twitter Tirade: Ad Features Feminist Poet Slamming Trump

A female poet recited verses that seem to center around feminism, history, aliens, and the president.

The poem reads:

“I heard a woman becomes herself the first time she speaks without permission.
Then every word out her mouth, a riot
Say beautiful, and point to the map of your body
Say brave, and wear your skin like a gown or a suit
Say hero, and cast yourself in the lead role
When a girl pronounces her own name, there is glory.
When a woman tells her own story, she lives forever
If this poem the only thing that survives me,
Tell them this is how I happened.
Tell them, I built me a throne.
Tell them, when we discovered life on another planet
It was a woman, and she built a bridge, not a border
I’m told this is how you create history, this is how you create a new world.”

Take a listen!
