Hannah Barca

She left from the city of Suffrage
to march on Rome. Just her
and the 37 elephants she carried with her,
one for each room she would visit in the Vatican.

She took nothing but an extraordinary green skirt
which had the same heft and hue as her country,
her purple robe of scorn and a broad brimmed hat
to keep her shoes and her powder dry.
