Blues for Pink (after Sureshot)

October 15, 2011

All of the secretaries in the admin office are women
And most of the nurses on the ward are wearing bras,
But most of ministers in the cabinet are David,
Or Andrew, or William, or Liam.

Most of the social workers, have experienced periods,
Most of the therapists, have worn rouge,
But most of the Bankers are in the boys club
And the Hedge Fund managers are wearing suits.

And most of the mothers will be staying at home
After the Government’s programme of hems.
It will be mostly women. Sitting in lounges. In 2011.
Mostly women, will collect their papers
And remember their mothers
And think of their children
And remember how
To sing the blues.
