90’s Woman – poem

This is another very old poem, written in 1996, in the heart of single parenting years

90’s Woman

This small framed

vulnerable creature

Who last night

quivered at a sharp word

Cooked supper, shaved, lathered


in bubble bath bliss

Tucked children in with a kiss

Woke to the demands of morning chaos

Lost her cool

Rushed kids to school


Kicked butt

Chain smoked


Got the job done

Rolled with the punches

Rose from the falls

To receive the compliment

“You’ve got balls”
