In the autumn of 2016, when this was written, the world political climate was showing hopeful signs of change, in a new direction
HOPE SPRINGS MATERNAL...
All will be well, with women in charge.
Goodbye to Boris, Gove and Farage
The girls have forsaken the sink and the oven
And hopefully Hillary's joining the coven
But though with feminine wiles and smiles and guile
They've lifted themselves to the top of the pile -
If enough fools in the land of the free
Should elect a clown to the presidency..
If a bare-chested superman still rules the state
Where long ago, sadly, Catherine was great
What hope will there be if the ladies fail
What hope for us if the hard men prevail ?
Then the world won't be saved
There'll be no golden age
And Margaret will turn in her grave
But the smart money's still on Ms. Clinton
(Truth to tell though, she's looking her age -)
Mrs May's kindly given Boris a job
And Farage is back in his cage
Still, Ange is in charge of the Germans
And Nicky is queen of the Scots
And Elizabeth R's done alright so far
Is it too much to hope for a feminine tzar ?
But do we really want women running the world ?
Will our leaders be one day all girls ?
If we keep the faith
Will they keep the world safe ?
Common sense in twin-set and pearls ?
But that might not be all that's yet to befall
Should we dare to hope they extend their scope
Beyond temporal power and that might come the hour -
That one day, might a lady,
Be Pope ?
Yes, I think it’s going to be alright…….
Where misogyny's rife
There’s conflict and strife
And if fortune forsakes
Bill Clinton's wife -
There may come a time when the whole world hates
The President of
The United States
Our hopes and our dreams fell to earth with a bump
The day they elected
