A Flaming Sword of Justice

many days have wished for a panoply
of weapons against the evil of
female genital mutilation
not only something
in distant Africa
or Asian cultures
suppressing women
in the Middle East by
cutting young girls
clitoris chopped off
in white America too
Christian doctors
cured sin of masturbation
to mutilate hundreds of
millions of God’s creations
in His name is indeed
the devil’s work
do not hide behind
a medical degree
and pseudo science
spare me your
mealy mouth excuses
of tradition, there
are NO REASONS you
can defend for allowing
female genital mutilation
to continue, the armor
of God demands you
cease or face His
justice in Hell
where you belong

ORIGIN late 16th cent. (in the sense ‘complete protection for spiritual warfare,’ often with biblical allusion to Eph. 6:11, 13): from French panoplie or modern Latin panoplia ‘full armor,’ from Greek, from pan ‘all’ + hopla ‘arms.’

New International Version (NIV):Ephesians 6:11-13 ~ 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

In 1947, when {Dr. Renee Bergstrom} was just three years old a doctor removed my clitoris. Female genital mutilation is mostly associated with African cultures, and non-Christian religions, but my FGM happened in white, Midwest America. It took place in a church clinic that used a scalpel on girls who masturbated. The article about female genital mutilation is located on the The Guardian.com website.
