Text

The Anti-Suffragist!
"I do not want to fly," said she
"I only want to squirm!"
She drooped her wings dejectedly
But still her voice was firm
"I do not want to be a fly
I want to be a worm!"
O yesterday of unknown lack!
To-day of unknown bliss!
I left my fool in red and black,
The last I saw was this-
The creature madly climbing back
Into her chrysalis!
