Suffragettes

From the Evening Star, January 12, 1913.
 By Philander Johnson.
 

     Oh, a suffragette will suffer
     And you need not try to bluff her
 With remarks about her being out of place.
     The ballot she will better,
     She will hand-paint every letter
 Till it proves a work of rare artistic grace.
 
     It is true that some are dashing
     Madly in for window smashing,
 And we tremble at reports from far away.
     But the ladies bent on voting,
     We are happy to be noting,
 Manage matters better in the U. S. A.
 
     When they go about campaigning
     They don’t start in with complaining
 That a man is nothing but “a horrid brute.”
     It is such an easy matter
     His intelligence to flatter
 Till he thinks he’s very wise and something cute.
 
     While they’re mighty in convention
     They can also claim attention
 By a smile and by a twinkle of the eye.
     They don’t make ferocious speeches.
     They’re not lemons. They are peaches.
 And no doubt they’ll all be voting by and by.
