Poem 4 - Hear Me Roar

Straight from the marrow

Of Adam’s rib

From washing dishes

To women’s lib

Women had to fight

For voting rights

And then

Stood their ground

To change the laws

Defied the rules

And burned their bras

United hearts

Demanding rules

To bend


Woman in pants

The men rebelled

In furious rants

When women

Started wearing pants

Waving signs

To pledge their rebel cause

Left the sink

With dirty dishes

Bowed no more

To grant their wishes

Took their place

Among the courts of law


Pledge of Allegiance

Lead On

Lead on

And may you not be weary

Hearts are full

Eyes are teary

May your fighting spirit

Never lag

Give no thought

To fear of failing

Think of Hillary

And Palin

Raise your hand

And pledge allegiance

To the flag


The Pledge explained

Time To Vote

      I so enjoyed reading your hub. Great job on the topic and loved the way your verses mingled together to add interest. Thanks for the posting of Red's video, he was such a good one for humor. Voted up!

      Wetnose, do warm up those feet. I will tell you now, it is challenging...it would be nice to know you're in there struggling with me.

      You might surprise yourself...Good seeing you.

      Cleaner3. You have a watchful eye. Do I detect a bit of detective? Thanks for the warning, but the only thing one can do on here is flag them. I think hubpages should have a rule of some kind. If you get caught doing that ... banish them.

      You are kind to warn me. Thank you.

      Cleaner 3, you encourage me. I had 4 brothers in the service at one time, and I have great admiration for our veterans and all who keep our wonderful country alive.

      Thanks for the love.....AD
