Women's Day Haiku


Women's Day
the woman says if only
she had a daughter

Women's Day
the transvestite says
wish there is a day for us too

Women's Day
all around her
brothers, husband and sons

Women's Day
she says her heroine
is Mother Teresa

Women's Day
she says women are great
because there were
Mulan and Joan of Arc
but never men who dressed
up as the opposite sex
to save the nation or daddy

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
