This is a Landay, aka Tapa poem written for a contest and Poet's Place
Look out President
By Lisa Noe


Leaders learn we ladies are strong and fearless,
We lead as well as our men in the nation.






The Landay, aka Tapa or Misr'a, has also been called "The 22 syllables that can get you killed," because of the rebellious tone Afghan women have used to express their independence from the restrictive culture in which they live. 22 syllables written in two lines with distribution varying among different sources and examples, but the one common feature is the biting expression representative of the Landay's definition: "short, poisonous snake."
