POETRY FRIDAY: If Women Get the Vote

I'm heading to Maine today for a wedding--so here's my Poetry Friday submission a day early. The poem is entitled If Women Get the Vote. It was written by a poet friend of mine who asked if I'd post the poem--anonymously--at Political Verses.

If Women Get the Vote
19th Amendment
Ratified August 18, 1920

There’s no use to pretend,
The world’s about to end,
If women get the vote.

The Catholics'll get in,
The blacks and Jews'll win,
If women get the vote.

Who wants to take the chance
That they'll be wearing pants,
If women get the vote?

You can read the rest of the poem here: If Women Get the Vote


Kelly Herold is doing the Poetry Friday Roundup this week at Crossover.
