Becky-Sue

 

1.   Are you worried Becky-Sue about the asteroids?

One of them smashing on earth any time soon?

I’m not worried.  I’ll still be around

Breathing or not,

Above or under ground,

Mostly under for added protection.

 

2.   Are you worried Becky-Sue of Earthquakes,

Volcanoes, El Nino, tornadoes, tidal waves, Ozone depletion?

I’m not worried.  They tend to visit my neighbors.

I see them on the screen when the President

Or his Vice hovers in choppers

Over the devastated areas.

 

3.   I am somewhat worried about the toxins

Created by Man, about radioactive materials

Dumped in my backyard.

But I already outlived my ancestors

Way before Man meddled with Nature.

 

4.   I am surely worried, Becky-Sue, of the forced issues:

Women shortening the periods of breast feeding,

Child rearing age, post pregnancy recovery

Because promotion at work matters,

Because equality with the stupid man matters.

 

5.   We are what we are

Because mothers made the human specie

Grow and stay alive, against all odds, wars and calamities.

Because mothers stayed and gathered moss

While men wandered, rolled and rumbled.

 

6.   Are you worried, Becky-Sue?

I really don’t know you:

Take me to the movie, tonight.
