I Need a Woman in the Office

It’s time to get a woman for the office, I guess.

The guys who’ve been in there have made it a mess.

It’s gone on this way for years and for years,

It’s now full of sneers and illogical jeers;

They think their one job is to play with the press;

They pass no more bills yet they call it … Congress!

We need a woman for the office, I’d say,

Someone less crass, beyond the foul fray.

Someone with reason and fine compromise,

Not some self-serving bad science surprise.

We need a woman in the office; we need her today,

To represent all in our American way.

In Congress, on councils, on boards, and at hand,

In towns and in counties, in states cross the land,

Vote women into office wherever you can,

Someone more open than a nay-saying man.

And not just a woman who likes how things stand,

Vote for the woman who answers with “And …”

It’s time for a woman in the office, I’m sure.

I’m tired of men who are nothing like her.

Voters, arise, and lift up your voice,

Come out now. Please give us that choice.

Vote a woman into office, for once don’t demure.

No more of such mess, just a sensible future.

According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform, more than 4 million illegal aliens and their U.S.-born children live in our sanctuary state, and it’s no wonder why.
