Happy Mother's Day (to those who are celebrating it today)

ON MOTHER'S DAY - CELEBRATE WOMEN TODAY


On this day and always, let's embrace the lives our mothers and grandmothers endured to provide us with the life we can all live today.  The vision of a stay-at-home mother who did nothing all day was perpetuated by a complicit media to keep women in their place.  The media are still at it but we live in a different time now - a time when people in general are learning to embrace the understanding that the genders, although different, are equals one to the other. 

CELEBRATE WOMEN TODAY

Ahhhh
Yes!
The Good Old Days
Happy Mother's Day My Most Wonderful Mother.  You are always missed!
When men were men
Those magnificent men
Who worked a full day
To bring home the pay

And
Women?

Well
Women
Weren't suitable
To work at all

A women's job was
Simply
To know her place
To know how to act
For the pleasure
Of a tickle from a feather
Or some other noble delight
Bestowed on her
By her man
Her magnificent man

What a life she led
As she lazed about the house
All day
Beautifully groomed
And dressed
In all the finery
Given to her
From the charity
Of her man
Her magnificent man

No
She never did do
A hard day's work
Except for those little delightful duties
Designed to please her man
Her magnificent man

How I miss those halcyon days
When men were men

And women?
Well women
Were chattel
Whose worth
Was "Hells" of a lot less
Than cattle!

Yes to be sure
How I miss those halcyon days
Days which
Have built up women's sway
To pave the way
For the strength
Of Women Today!

That is why we can
In absolute honesty
Celebrate
Women
Today!

Happy Mother's Day
