Lets Hear It For Women A Rousing Hip Hooray


lets hear it for women a rousing hip hooray
The mothers and spiritual leaders of the World of today
Her son or daughter in prison time for their crimes pay
But my offspring is a good person the mother does say
Lets hear it for women them we under-rate
Their contribution to society we should celebrate
For too long in the guise of religion their rights to them by men denied
Lets hear it for the men who are on their side
Some males are convinced they were born for to lead
A few life stories of great women in book form to read
The males with big egos are those who succeed
But more women in positions of power we do need
The queen never should have to bow to the king
Lets hear it for women their praises we'll sing.

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
