Since beginning of time, perfect machines, were invented & made,
Designed, created & formed, within every shape, & in each shade,
Faced with every adversity, they are always durable & dependable,
Yet, sadly, by some, not valued, & considered merely expendable.
At times, they can be as hard as rock, & just as sturdy & reliant,
And yet, they’re upholstered in silk, & so softly gentle & pliant,
They snap & crack, to the point of braking, yet, ever they mend,
As the wind through weeping willows, they curtsy low, & bend.
They know of poetry, music, dancing, & the old ancient stories,
Those of herbs & spells, & of life’s pains, sufferings & glories,
They know of sustenance & recipes, of comforting & mending,
They are machines of cleansing, creating, & of fixing & bending.
Machines, lubricated in blood, milk, & salt tears of great oceans,
Within the sweat of great stamina, & all their donated emotions,
These perfect machines, called women, are too, human beings,
Perfect machines, creators of life, but with real human feelings.
