Weekly Prompts – Complaints

He slapped her hard!
Her broken earrings were a testimony.
She complained…
Not about being slapped,
But about her broken earrings.

She came home late!
Wailing son, angry MIL and cranky husband welcomed her.
She complained…
Not about their incompetence,
But about the never ending meetings.

She wore a skirt!
Filthy comments and creepy glares followed her.
She complained…
Not about the perverts,
But about her dress.

She broke down, again!
They called her sensitive, emotional and weak.
She complained…
Not about their inhumanity,
But about her hormones.

She got her periods during temple visit!
Her family was miffed and termed her impure
She complained…
Not about the society,
But about being a girl.
