Women are baby makers ...

#womened

My #digimeet #womened myth to bust is 'women are baby makers'. I write this 6 months pregnant and so yes, there are women who make babies. And women who don't. And women who do lots of other things too.

.

'Women are the baby makers',

Risk takers, booty shakers.

.

'Women are the newborn carriers',

Ceiling shatterers, breaking barriers.

.

'Women are the child raisers',

Nothing-fazers, star gazers.

.

'Women are the family feeders',

Fierce leaders, avid readers.

.

'Women are the dinner-cookers',

On-lookers, Don't-give-a-fuckers.

.

'Women are the clothes folders',

Standing on shoulders, getting bolders.

.

'Women are the high-heel wearers',

Glory sharers, rule book tearers.

.

'Women are the home keepers',

Reward reapers, occasional weepers.

.

'Women are always clean and tidy',

Hoover on Monday, Gin on Friday.

.

'Women are the kiss it betters',

Glad you met hers, go and getters.

.

'Women are incessant talkers',

Great explorers, wanting morers.

.

'Women are kids' taxi drivers',

Life's thrivers, high-fivers.

.

'Women are the hair pluckers',

Bed tuckers, not about lookers.

.

'Women are the load lighteners',

Wrong righters, up all nighters.

.

'Women are the organisers',

Up we risers, quiet and wisers.

.

'Women are the peace makers',

Sometimes bakers, sometimes takers.

.

'Women are the food shoppers',

Hair choppers, disco boppers.

.

'Women are the bra burners',

Passion yearners, ever-learners.

.

Women are.
