The Place to Go

It doesn't matter what

the Weather Girls said.

One can not simply
invite all the world's women

to a centralized location
in "the street"

and have them wait for that
downpour of men

that they claim is imminent.

First of all
they wouldn't fit

(well they technically would

but there would be minimal
elbow or purse room)

second of all
some of them would be hoping

for it to "rain women"

and third of all
even with such variety

they might nonetheless agree
on some common cause

for which they feel
a wee bit (or a lot)
held back or treated unfairly

and start marching in protest.
