Hard Times

I'm not an advocater
Of women's liberation.

I'm just a simple housewife
Who's trying to fight inflation.

I've had to take a job
To supplement the income

For with the rising cost of living,
It takes my husband's check
And then some.

I've put aside my apron
And the cookbooks I've enjoyed
So I could take my name
From the list of unemployed.

By Sue Nugent 1966
