Happy International Women’s Month — Infamous Laydeez Series: Bruisin’ Susan

A challenge ’twas to women who
Befriend Susan B. Anthony —
Those rallies she kept going to
Hoping to impress
Impervious powers that be
(If necessary by duress)
Of the advisability
Of allowing such as she
Masculine chambers to imbue
With rampant femininity
Determining anew
The unacceptability
Of laws taken for granted be
By those privileged few
Whom benefit by them access
Allowing them a gross excess
Of lucre to accrue
Not to mention that if you
Hung out with such a stocking blue
You must expose your ankles to
Unsympathetic public view
In dread social ignimony:
She tended to require that you
Wear a Bloomer dress!
