Helen, the Champion

For your weight
and your style
you are the champion
the world champion

The subjective struggle
you have already won
who could ask for anything more?

The objective one
"redefining the feminine"
will be slower to gain
for there are many who benefit
from the existing order
and customs
are hard to change
while stupidity generally reigns

but slowly
your ideology advances
as it must

With your passion
your focus,
your organization
you give it
a vital thrust.
