WALKABOUTSVERSE 103 OF 230

Poem 103 of 230:  EQUAL AWARD-PAY

“Equal average-pay,”
    I heard her say.
But males, on average, are just as smart
    And physically stronger -
One can see it at sport;
    I’m sure she’s wrong there.

In clarification,
    I should add on
That any applying woman, best prepared
    For the tasks of work that lay,
Should win work, and receive
    Equal award-pay.
