Modern Woman

He seeks a woman who is modern
Without a twinkle of concern
Today joy is no longer just a boy
A woman has more skills to deploy

She is a companion
She is an attraction
She is a distraction
She is a fascination

He seeks a woman who is modern
Parading streaks displaying stubborn
The concepts easy come and easy go
In his dictionary is a big 'No, No, No' especially to the bimbo

She must be able to joke and laugh
Tease him at playtime with a scarf
At home laboriously contribute
Always maintain her youth looking cute

He seeks a woman who is modern
Multi-tasking must be her pattern
Today with her skills wide-ranged
Her role has three sixty degrees changed

She is an intellect
She is almost perfect
She deserves respect
She is a mans hearts elect

He seeks a woman who is modern
Who is yearning to learn!
For the concept of equality
He knows is not a nonentity

Gone are days when it all began!
When woman was born of man
Everything worked according to plan
Till the ban, they both took cover and ran

He seeks a woman who is modern
Who is yearning to learn!
He knows somewhere in his head and mind
The modern woman has risen from behind

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
