One fine day

One day, long, long ago, there lived a woman who did not whine, nag, or  bitch!

 But it was a long time ago, and it was just for that one day.   

Now for some home-made poetry to celebrate the feminists of this world.

         Who would have thought
from her composed carriage
her quiet dress
her dulcet tone or
the career
she sacrificed
to succeed
as mother and wife
that she was once
the life-wire
of Eusoffe
and Singapore’s own
Betty Friedan or
Germaine Greer?
Then as now,
butter won’t melt
in her mouth
but once upon a time,
many a strong man
did.
