Tribute to Amelia Earhart

Amelia, what were you thinking? It was still the dark ages for women Your parents and your husband spoiled you. You had no idea what was waiting Large greedy hands could not wait to get you To make you what you were not Simpering and begging, whining and groveling. They thought you too proud. You were captured by the Numbskulls Who capture all sassy confident, assertive women And torture them into admitting That men are superior in every way You did not go lightly or easily They rapidly realized they had A wild cat on their hands. One who had been spoiled. You were making too much of a ruckus. They got rid of you quietly, and in the dark. You became a pirate, a water girl. Numbskulls being numbskulls!

Thank you. She has always lingered as a fond memory in my mind even though I was not born yet.
