Woman

I am come from a single rib
I am known as woman
I'm a Mother a Daughter a Sister and Wife
All Praises to God who gave me life
I'm a Great-GrandMother GrandMother Aunt and Niece
A Doctor Lawyer and even a Priest
Don't tell me I Can't when I know that I could
I'm even an Advocate for the Neighborhood
I can Sprecken Ze Deutch ask Parle’ Vous France’?
I can speak with a drawl and say "Hi Ya ‘LL"
I'm a Banker a Planner an Entrepreneur
A Captain a cook and a Connoisseur
I'm a Dancer a Writer and I act in Plays
Ha! Ha! I can be on stage at any age
I'm a Jane of all Trades-Mastered some
And I've got my eye on those things yet to come
A host of others I've yet to name
The interest of time is the only blame
I am come from from a Single Rib
I am known as woman
