Protecting descendants –
Depicted as virgins, whores and centrefolds –
Lady Madonna, Virgin Mary, Mother Teresa,
You’ve got nothing on us.
Venus unites –
The banshee; sings for equality.
Adam gave his rib –
But Eve gave her baby.
Female warriors of eternity.
Striving for private time;
Poems created at dinner,
Books behind the mountain of ironing,
Bandaging knees while seeking to be cultured.
Strip off the titles and learn our names.
Wishing for Prince Charming –
Only to find we are the Queens of the Castle.
Depended on –
Uniquely needed; to secure,
The human legacy.
– L.J. Lenehan –
