Happy International Women’s Month — Infamous Laydeez Series: That Dickinson Girl

Inhabiting a world of men
In an age Victorian
Once each now and then again
Some young upstart woman would
Conduct her other than she should
According to authorities
Everybody looked to please

Such a one was Emily
Presented with, complacently,
Demand her public faith renew
In the annual review
All the students put on view

Ms. Dickinson kept herself out
Of the universal route
She said then, “I prefer, you see,
The privilege of doubt.”
