Comment on this article

by Joan McNerney

After twenty two
I swore to stay single.

I'd be a monkey's aunt
before becoming a slave
to any man
giving up my name
losing my ambition
subordinate to HIM.

9 to 5
bad enough
forget 24/7!

Crazy lazy, crazy lazy.
No good renegade,
heretic, gypsy.
Too smart for
her own good.

But as luck had it
one guy fell head
over heels over me
and my defiant ways.
