America Needs A Woman President 

America Needs A Woman President

America needs a woman President
giving birth to a new America
embracing the world

America needs a woman President
Open hearted
Compassion is her greatest family value

an intuitive President
who can feel if the information is true
before sending troops to war

America needs a woman President
scrubbing ears of advisors
so they hear with their hearts not statistics

America needs a Goddess in office
Statue of Liberty
who will care for the poor and huddled masses

a teacher President
who can read between the lines of NAFTA and GATT
and will grade bully corporations accordingly

a maiden President
who acknowledges all life with supreme reverence
beyond borders, colors or religion
America needs a menopausal President
unafraid to speak her mind
without quivering to special interests

A Grandmother President
wise woman
who admits past mistakes with great laughter

America needs a woman President
who can cry
at what we’ve done to our forests

America needs a Priestess President
enchanting Congress with her speeches
restoring those liberties lost in the wasteland of fear

a mid-wife President
who will teach us how to breathe
during times of new birth that are painful

an herbalist President
drawing strength from nature’s goodness
and offering free health care to all

a medicine woman president
who can see with the eyes of Earth
and holds counsel with her ancestors

America needs a woman president
aware
of her power to nurture
a Mother president
who understands the cycles of life
and lets go
America needs a woman president
who trusts in the wisdom of the moon
America needs a woman president
who can listen when others are speaking
