I'm all for the Me Too, Time's Up movements, abusers need to be brought down. BUT, enough
"The Lady Doth . . . "

The current climate of "Time's Up", "Me too!"
exposed a wrong against the vulnerable.
A movement hearing voices overdue.
They shout with charges indisputable.

Though not exclusively for women wronged.
It seems that most complaints do come from there.
Abusing power, mostly men belonged,
they use their strength, intimidate and snare.

Now many men have fallen in their shame
and many more will follow in their wake.
The line is drawn but not to bring one fame.
A compliment can be just that, no snake.

So don't mistake attraction for abuse
and protest only when there is misuse.
