First Line: First he said
Last Line: Am I not I -- here?

First he said:
It is the woman in us
That makes us write --
Let us acknowledge it --
Men would be silent.
We are not men
Therefore we can speak
And be conscious
(of the two sides)
Unbent by the sensual
As befits accuracy.

I then said:
Dare you make this
Your propaganda?

And he answered:
Am I not I -- here?
