1884 Poem by Christina Rossetti, Portrait of Christina and her Mother by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, 1877.below is a transcript of the poem.
Another year of joy and grief,
Another year of hope and fear:
Oh Mother, is life long or brief?
We hasten while we linger here.
But since we linger, love me still,
And help me still, O Mother mine
While hand in hand we seale life’s hill,
You Guide, and I your Valentine.
So I’m sure you recognize this as one of the epic moments from “The Prince of Egypt” where we see the super majestic whale as they cross through the Red Sea. However I noticed just one little issue: whale tales don’t move from side to side, they move up and down. And then it hit me, that’s not a whale. That’s not a whale. It’s a motherfucking SHARK. A BIG ASS MEGALODONIAN SHARK. WAITING IN THE WATER TO EAT THE PHARAOH’S SOLDIERS. Goddamn, Dreamworks.
What’s it like to work alongside so many other women of color?
