International Women’s Day Limerick

Tomorrow, March 8, is International Women’s Day. So I thought I’d celebrate with a limerick:

International Women’s Day Limerick
By Madeleine Begun Kane

U.S. women are under attack.
We’ve gone backwards, alas and alack.
Our plight is irrational.
Mark International
Women’s Day — Get off our back!

    I’m ‘Woman,’ so hear me now roar:
    I’m not a slut nor a whore,
    so I hope I’m persuasive.
    No law that’s invasive
    should be up for vote on the floor.

    Happy International Women’s day, especially to all brave women who fought for a world where women and men have equal opportunities, rights and status in the society.

    International day of woman it is
    honor by each  her and his
    Remember this day
     no matter which way
    all born from a womb not a whiz 

    Now whizzes essential tis true
    In getting things started on cue
    Yet a shout and a squirt
    Are but a blipped  blurt
    On the landscape that brought you to you 

  4. Pearl Ketover Prilik says:

    Was a small bairn less than three
    Fascinated with his mum’s swelling belly
    When he found out a baby was growing inside
    He said with a grinning pure possible pride
    That he’d switch and not a man but a woman he’d be

    The young mum had raised him sweet and so dear 
    Without a hint of gender constraining bar here 
    Looked at her bright eyed small son
    knew the time had so early begun 
    The creative input of father made clear 

  5. Pearl Ketover Prilik says:

    A woman’s hand rocks the cradle – all that
    But wears also on head many a hat
    From draped burka flowed land 
    To conducting a band
    A woman is far more off her rocker  than that!
