Oh You Are Provocative

Oh, don't wear that skirt. 
It is provocative. 
It's glittery and above your knee. 
Don't buy that shirt. It's deep. 
It's provocative, and 'he' will Rape you.
Oh no! It's your fault 'he' raped you. 
Oh no! It's your fault 'he' continues to rape you. 
Don't drape that saree. It's transparent.
Don't fold the jeans, your ankle - it's provocative. 
Don't show your back, your shoulder, your arm,
Your lips, your legs, your nails, your hair:
Your charm, your ears, your eyes, your face,
Your hips, your thighs, your stinking armpits!
Your boobs and behind are not just...
Oh that's provocative.

YOU are provocative. 
Don't smile. Don't laugh. Don't go out. 
Don't be single. Don't party. Don't drink. 
Don't smoke. Don't have friends. 
Don't forget to wear a jacket,
Don't forget the dupatta,
Don't forget the leggings under the kurta. 
Don't show your bra strap but 
Don't look at the bright Jockey band he's wearing. 
Don't walk. Don't talk. Don't bother. 

You are a girl. That's provocative enough. 
Don't be you. You are provocative enough. 
You are provocative. 
Run. You are provocative. 
'They' will rape you. 
Run, you are provocative. Don't get raped.
