Women In Old Western Movies - Poem by Marilyn Lott

Do you ever watch old western movies?
I have and it just seems to me
The way women were portrayed back then
Do not come off believably

They’re either both rough and nasty
Or they’re a doormat for a man
For when they’re treated very badly
Won’t rise up and take a stand

Of course we had Dale Evans
Now she was my kind of gal
If she had an opinion she said it
She wasn’t afraid to say foul

But many cry and carry on instead
Of putting their hands on their hips
And chewing people out like they deserved
Rather they whine and pout their lips

What do you think ladies?
Do you have the same opinion as I?
Do you wish women in old western movies
Stood up for themselves instead of cry?
