Woman, always bending, her chores unending,
She, forever caring & never ever is she sparing,
Woman, plying, knitting, sewing, planting, hoeing,
She, sawing & at times to survive, even whoring,
Always eking & within her old soul, wisdom seeking,
Woman, sowing, reaping, in secret does her weeping,
She, cooking, cleaning, always searching the meaning,
Woman, always loving, dreaming, forced to scheming,
She, forever lending, forever darning, fixing, mending,
Woman, birthing, nursing & so often, even cursing,
She, with infinite patience, the backbone of all nations.
