Liner Notes: 

Skirmish prompt: Warrior or Rock and a Hard Place
There was also a structure challenge

I used Warrior as them and used rock and a hard place in lyrics, and also used one of the structures C V V C O

Needs music and I would love a collaborator!

Lyrics: 

C
warrior women
raise your voices
warrior women
warrior women

warrior women
seize your choices
warrior women
warrior women

we will win this fight
we will win our rights
we will win the night
warrior women

V1
smash their glass ceilings
break down their walls
hold your head up
and stand up tall
leave rocks and hard places
in their hallowed halls
bring out the goddess
goddess beauty in you
not how they see it
but what rings true
true for you
beautiful warriors
rise up now

V2
trash their Tory views
tear up their rules
claim your power
don’t sing their blues
leave patriarchal lies
to embrace your truth
bring out the wild
wild amazon in you
don’t let them tame you
in what you do
do for you
amazon warriors
rise up now

C
warrior women
raise your voices
warrior women
warrior women

warrior women
seize your choices
warrior women
warrior women

we will win this fight
we will win our rights
we will win the night
warrior women

OUTRO
beautiful warrior women
amazon warrior women
we will win

well done very powerful good use of a skirmish could be anthemic

Very Amazonian lyric. Strong and forceful feel to the lines, as I would expect with the subject matter.

I like the strength and the good use of repetition. Tbh, though, I kind of feel like I was eavesdropping on a conversation. I almost cringed thinking about the women who would sing this song going after the "patriarchy." I need to make a sign, "I'm not with those bastards."

Yes women can be warriors to!! Made me wonder why I immediately thought of a man when I saw the prompt. Love the "glass ceilings" line and mentions of Amazons. Good write.

Whoooooaaaaahhh! I knew you'd rise to the occasion, and in an anthemic manner. Smile Powerful lyric, with your usual good, tight writing. And I like how and where you brought in the 'rock and a hard place' theme. Nicely done with the unusual structure as well.

Thank you for being a part of this Skirmish. Smile

I instinctively want to say "you go girl", but that would feel wrong in so many ways. Biggrin

Ok, joking aside, it's unbeliveable how half the population on the planet still have things so bad. It never really even occurs to me, because I just think of people as people, but when I hear the stories... jesus. That's some grim dystopian shit.
