cill riallaig, by Derek Culley @ alt ents

If all the sea were ink
and all the rocks were chalk,
if every bird’s wing were a pen
and the sky a single sheet,

Put a pen in the hand of every man
of the seed of Eve and Adam
and still they’d leave unwitnessed
two thirds of woman’s wickedness.

Le Seán Ó Tuama

(in the case of the louder misogynist, I think a large chubby crayon would be more suited to the task !)
