A female leader

I think it’s time
for a female
leader.

Let’s be honest.
Men have been
fucking things up
for a very long time.

My only advice
to the brave women
chosen to lead us
into our uncertain
future:

Being a woman
isn’t enough
if you’re on the
same ego trip
that men have
been on since
the first caveman
hit another
in the head
with a rock
during an
argument
about a wooly
mammoth.

We’ve had
enough head
butting for
the next few
thousand
years.

What’s needed
now is your
intuition, your
gentleness, and
your connection
with nature and
the body –

an open palm,
not another
clenched fist.
