A New Woman

Barefoot and pregnant,
Scrubbing pots and pans;
Supper's on the table,
I must submit to man!

No formal education,
My place is in the house;
Silent, without emotion,
So loyal to my spouse!

The laundry's neat and tidy,
The kids are off to school;
Here I go to the market,
Never will I break your rules!

Well, marmalade and poppycock,
Have I got news for you;
The 18th century's over,
I'm not your crawling fool!

Barefoot and pregnant?
It's only because I can;
If you want your supper,
Get up and lend a hand!

I have an education,
I'm free to leave the house;
Emotions conquer silence,
I'm a woman, not a mouse! 

Laundry's in the hamper,
The kids are off to school;
Come go with me to the market,
Only games are played by rules!

A new girl has risen,
With force and contemplation;
Someday she'll run for president,
Make way for a brand new nation!
