This poem is dedicated to all females who are unjustly held back for the many reasons mentioned below. For all the Mothers, sisters, friends and spouses of the past and future... shall we ever learn?

SHE WILL NEVER BE...

She will never be
what she wants to be

...because they will admire her figure
and not the confidence she wears

....because they will notice her golden mane
and not the experience she bares

...because they will judge her skin color
and not the depth of her soul

...because they will desire her flesh
and not the capacity of her mind

...because they will listen to her speak
and not hear the context of her message

...because they will discover her to be single
and not understand her independence

...because they will find children in her home
and not utilize her gift of creativity

...because they will regard her age too old
and not seek her years of wisdom

...because they will stumble upon her troubled past
and not recognize her achievements of today

...because they will rate her by her social calendar
and not for her social graces

...because they will decide her fate by gender
and not for her strong will and ability

...because they will see her weakness when she cries
and not for her compassion for living

She will never be
what she wants to be...

IF WOMEN RULED THE WORLD...

* PMS would be a legitimate defense in court.

* Singles bars would have metal detectors to weed out men hiding wedding rings in their pockets.

* A man would no longer be considered a "good catch" simply because he is breathing.

* Fewer women would be dieting because their ideal weight standard would increase by 40 pounds.

* Shopping would be considered an aerobic activity.

* "Ms." Magazine would have an annual swimsuit issue featuring cantily clad male models.

* Men would be secretaries for female bosses, working twice as hard for none of the credit.

* Little girls would read "Snow White and the Seven Hunks."

* Men would earn 70 cents for every dollar women made.

* Men would bring drinks, chips and dip to women watching soap operas.

* Men would HAVE to get Playboy for the articles, because there would be no pictures.

* Men would learn phrases like "I'm sorry," "I love you," "You're beautiful,"

* Men would be judged entirely by their looks, women by their accomplishments.

* Men would sit around and wonder what WE are thinking.

* Men would pay as much attention to their woman as to their car.

* All toilet seats would be nailed down.

* Men would work on relationships as much as they work on their careers.

* TV news segments on sports would never run longer than 1 minute.

AGING IS WHEN...

~~Every thing hurts and what doesn't hurt doesn't work

~~The gleam in your eye is from the sun hitting your bi-focals

~~You feel like the morning after--and you haven't been anywhere

~~You know all the answers-but no one ask you the questions.

~~You lookforward to a dull evening

~~Your knees buckle--and your belt won't

~~You're 17" around the neck--42" around the waist and 96 around the golf course

~~You burn the midnight oil at 9;00PM

~~Your back goes out more often than you do

~~Your pacemaker makes the garage door go up when an attractive member of the opposite sex goes by

~~You sink your teeth into a steak and they stay there

25 THINGS
THAT DAVE BARRY LEARNED
IN THE FIRST 50 YEARS OF HIS LIFE...


1) The badness of a movie is directly proportional to the number of helicopters in it.

2) You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason why we observe daylight savings time.

3) People who feel the need to tell you that they have an excellent sense of humor are telling you that they have no sense of humor.

4) The most valuable function performed by the federal government is entertainment.

5) You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment.

6) A penny saved is worthless.

7) They can hold all the peace talks they want, but there will never be peace in the Middle East. Billions of years from now, when Earth is hurtling toward the Sun and there is nothing left alive on the planet except a few microorganisms, the microorganisms living in the Middle East will be bitter enemies.

8) The most powerful force in the universe is gossip.

9) The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status, or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we all believe that we are above average drivers.

10) There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age 11.

11) There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

12) People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.

13) There apparently exists, somewhere in Los Angeles, a computer that generates concepts for television sitcoms. When TV executives need a new concept, they turn on this computer; after sorting through millions of possible plot premises, it spits out, "THREE QUIRKY BUT ATTRACTIVE YOUNG PEOPLE LIVING IN AN APARTMENT," and the executives turn this concept into a show. The next time they need an idea, the computer spits out, "SIX QUIRKY BUT ATTRACTIVE YOUNG PEOPLE LIVING IN AN APARTMENT." Then the next time, it spits out, "FOUR QUIRKY BUT ATTRACTIVE YOUNG PEOPLE LIVING IN AN APARTMENT." And so on. We need to locate this computer and destroy it with hammers.

14) Nobody is normal.

15) At least once per year, some group of scientists will become very excited and announce that:
a) The universe is even bigger than they thought!
b) There are even more subatomic particles than they thought!
c) Whatever they announced last year about global warming is wrong.

16) If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be "meetings."

17) The main accomplishment of almost all organized protests is to annoy people who are not in them.

18) The value of advertising is that it tells you the exact opposite of what the advertiser actually thinks. For example:
a) If the advertisement says "This is not your father's Oldsmobile," the advertiser is desperately concerned that this Oldsmobile, like all other Oldsmobiles, appeals primarily to old geezers like your father.
b) If Coke and Pepsi spend billions of dollars to convince you that there are significant differences between these two products, both companies realize that Pepsi and Coke are virtually identical.
c) If the advertisement strongly suggests that Nike shoes enable athletes to perform amazing feats, Nike wants you to disregard the fact that shoe brand is unrelated to athletic ability.
d) If Budweiser runs an elaborate advertising campaign stressing the critical importance of a beer's "born-on" date, Budweiser knows this factor has virtually nothing to do with how good a beer tastes.

19) If there really is a God who created the entire universe with all of its glories, and He decides to deliver a message to humanity, He will not use, as His messenger, a person on cable TV with a bad hairstyle.

20) You should not confuse your career with your life.

21) A person, who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person.

22) No matter what happens, somebody will find a way to take it too seriously.

23) When trouble arises and things look bad, there is always one individual who perceives a solution and is willing to take command. Very often, that individual is irrational.

24) Your friends love you anyway.

25) Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.
