A Use of History


In response, the women
assumed the names of
Victorian whores.

Foul-Mouthed Felicia
did the talking, and
Spread-Legs Shirl chaired.

Clergy counseled patience,
then biblical brutality as Shirl
lived up to her name.

The men disparaged the cloth,
opting for a quick settlement.

They capitulated on major points.

The women felt free, then, in
victory, to revert to comfortable roles.

All-enveloping sweet Motherhood.

Terribly fashionable Garden Partying
with dresses and heels, of course.

And pearls!

Don't forget them.

Jumbos now.
