Ode to Mary

Mary never married; she’s and old maid,
Wasting her life creating a career.
She did not require a man to get paid,
And was in charge of where her life would steer.
No woman has ever lived a worse fate
Than one who did not raise a family.
This living will never go out of date
Than a husband to supply the money
While she stays at home to tidy up the place.
She will never know the joy of children
Because she decided on the rat race,
Instead of the role of common women.
Please make sure to shed a tear for Mary
Tolling life away in a library.
