Critique of Gender Roles
But in making of pies she was not very wise,
And baking she never could do.
She could construe, could parse, and could phrase,
She had studied the stars in their maze;
But to know if a chicken for broiling was "fittin' "— That subject to her seemed a haze.
At length this young woman did wed
A youth whom we will call Ned;
She loved him, 'tis true, but what could love do
Towards keeping him even well fed?
If you think I'm going to tell
All the scrapes which this maiden befell,
You will find you are wrong, for that's not my song,
As she got along tolerably well.
For she did the most sensible thing—
She caught her fine thoughts on the wing,
And set them to work, without letting them shirk,
On the duties that dinners will bring.
And so, before very long, Ned
Was the happiest Benedict wed;
For his wife was so bright,
and her muffins were light,
Her coffee was good and her bread.
Mistakes she did make the first week—
For perfection on earth who would seek?
For I'm sure we'd make more, by a dozen or score,
If you and I tackled her Greek.
