All The Way From Venus - Poem by Fabian Gerard Stanley

They're from another planet not too far from ours
But an interesting one at that, just like good ol' Mars.

They're wired different, that's all - not much else is strange
They've done it all - cook and clean, our messes they'd rearrange.

They'd even bring home the bacon and sometimes wear the pants,
Just as organized, you might think, and dedicated as ants.

Please don't try and change her, perhaps she's no work of art.
But just take her for what she is ‘cos that's what sets her apart.

No need for a contest, dress code, or a theme;
Just to be treated as an equal is every woman's dream.

Mother, wife, friend, confidante, you're dedicated your roles,
Woman, we salute you though distant be our poles.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this poem as part of a contest conducted on Women's Day 2012. My entry won a prize. The contest was open only to male employees who wanted to salute the woman/women in their lives. The 9th line is meant to tell companies and people not to honor their women employees only on Women's Day, but all year round.
