Equal Pay

United by their joint love
Soccer fans forever

All hands in on three
They cheered for all their heroes
World champs, once again

Friendship forever
Winning four Women’s World Cups
Dominate players

Ticker tape parade
Beating out the Netherlands
In red, white and blue

I want to play like
Badass Megan Rapinoe
And Alex Morgan

Dye my hair purple
Kelley O’Hara kisses
Julie Ertz desire

Carli Lloyd success
USA! Equal pay chant
McDonald a mom

Confetti and chants of equal pay, honored the U.S. women’s soccer team today, in the NYC ticker-tape parade down the Canyon of Heroes in Manhattan, celebrating the team’s World Cup triumph and paying tribute to the players as icons of women’s rights.

Written for Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, July 10th 2019, friendship.
