Protecting descendants –

Nourishing children.

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 –
