Maybe She’ll Be On Our Team

Filed under: Uncategorized — pointeballet @ 9:59 pm

Jeannie lived and worked
Before subsidized day care
Before women were paid the 100 cent dollar
(we’re still at 69 cents)
Before we knew about pesticides and childhood leukemia
She seemed a little stiff, a disciplined one
She couldn’t wait to clean up

She made it WORK.

She ran for office in her own way.

(Check out the family behavior, she beats Sarah Palin)

She made a not-lived- in model home

She spot-checked and ironed

Her daughter died -even tho’ she learned

To clean EVERYTHING

why wouldn’t
She want a perfect world –
No fuss no muss.
The thing is SHE DID IT.
So whatever world we want
LET’S DO IT.
Maybe she’ll be on our team.
