Modern Woman


These are the days of the E.R.A..,
When modern woman would have her way;
The scriptures, it seems, she's never heard,
For she pays no attention to God's word.

God's order of the sexes she just ignores,
For man's place she covets more and more,
Saying that she would be equal with man,
Forgetting the fact that she never can.

Neither could man ever take her place,
For he's not equipped for bearing the race,
Nor has he a mother's instinct and love,
Given to her from heaven above.

Now man reasons coolly with his head,
But woman is led by emotions instead;
God equipped man to take the hard knocks,
But made the woman, the cradle to rock.

Still, modern woman doesn't see it that way,
So against her maker she rebels every day;
With bobbed hair and immodest dress,
For God's Holy Word she could care less.

And even in churches this rebellion prevails,
For God said long hair and a covering, or veil;
In the church, be silent, be quiet and meek,
But she has even decided to preach!

Now God knows whats best for His creation,
And, oh, how well off would be this nation,
If each home were a castle, every man a king,
With a queen subjected to him in all things.

A queen he could love, and honor, and cherish,
And work to this end, that their home might flourish;
A queen in whom his heart could safely trust ,
He would seek her well-being, and protect her he must!

She would send him off with a smile and a prayer,
And a sense of well-being, knowing she was there;
To watch over his children and keep them from harm,
Teaching them and guiding them with a firm, loving arm.

And then he would hurry when day's work was done,
Home to his queen, his daughters and sons;
They would live for each other and all live for God,
Serving Him together as life's path they trod.

Oh, how much better off would be the human race,
If woman, once more, would take her God-given place;
But these are the days of the E.R.A.,
And modern woman would have her own way
