11 of 12 given words:
bread, smile, promise,
braid (material woven into a decorative band for edging or trimming garments)
wrapper sleep kiss candle doorbell porch rock
who to deliver the bread?
did it come with a smile?
was it a promise that came with equality?
all braided in a tight understanding
were these arising from the saying
'equal pay for equal work?'
or was it just a wrapper
to provide a cover
to enclose women within?
to sleep with followed by kiss and tell?
women had been subjected
to such indignities
women are to be adored
with candle-light dinners of old perhaps
not a doorbell at the porch
to be rung at random
women have come a long way
strong and stable as a rock
a better half rightly so!
