It’s cold and the lights don’t work.
They say 10 is important. I can’t hear where we are up to.
I fart, but it doesn’t matter

because I’m all alone.

They didn’t expect me to come.
They didn’t invite me to come.
They don’t really want me to come.

They didn’t even see me there.

Welcome to the women’s section.
Where we put G-d behind a mechitza.

    Can definitely relate. That awkward , flushing embarrassed “Well I’m here and please notice me so that I can be part of this but also I don’t want to make a big fuss about being here so please quietly notice and accomodate me and also bloody hell its 2017 religion and community belongs to us too.”
