Musings of An Old Man

by Brian K. Moore

WELCOME LADIES

KIWANIANS COME IN MANY FORMS
BIG AND TALL AND LITTLE
THERE’S THEM THAT’S THIN
AND THEM THAT’S FAT
AND THEM THAT’S IN THE MIDDLE

TIME WAS WHEN WE OF MASCULINE GENDER
COULD THROUGH THE MEETING SAIL
SECURE WITHIN THE CONFIDENCE
THAT ALL OF US WERE MALE

BUT THINGS ARE DIFFERENT THAN THEY WERE
THE HIGH COURT HAVING SPOKEN
AND WITH THE COMING OF THE GALS
OUR MANNISH GRIP IS BROKEN

BUT THINGS ARE BETTER THAN THEY WERE
WE’RE FAR FROM BEING DEAD
WE SEE THE LIGHT, THE FUTURE’S BRIGHT
NOW THAT WE’VE BECOME CO-ED

AND FELLOWS, NOW THE GALS ARE HERE
DON’T YOU GUYS GET FLIRTY
AND IF YOU TELL A LITTLE JOKE
IT SHOULDN’T BE TOO DIRTY

AND LADIES I MUST TELL YOU NOW
BEFORE THIS POEM’S DONE
THAT ALL THE THINGS I’VE SAID SO FAR
HAVE ONLY BEEN IN FUN

AND EARNESTLY WE WELCOME YOU
AND WE ARE MOST SINCERE
WE’RE PLEASED THAT YOU HAVE JOINED OUR CLUB
WE’RE GLAD TO HAVE YOU HERE
