Shirley, Goodness and Mercy

He supported Shirley Chisholm
Way back in the day;
Way way back in the day;
And he can’t understand
How we’ve gone astray. 

Five women initially in the field
To now zero 
To now zero, 
Can that be real?
We need a female hero

Or maybe one just competent
And already we’ve had many
Who can count the cost of a penny
And still provide care so urgent
To the ever so very needy. 

Compassion, passion — a real leader.
In any event, we really need her.
