At Last~~~The Vote

Come Sarah, Maude Elizabeth,
Jane, Mary, Kate and Sue —
Rose, Margaret, Annie, Amy,
Belle, Gertrude, Helen Lou —
Come all! In nineteen twenty
We’ll sound a ringing note,
Though many years in coming,
This year we go to vote!

For weeks we’ve been “instructed”
By some well blessed with sense,
And some who only lately
Sat uncertain on the fence,
And some who had fought suffrage
Stood up, (and this is true),
To tell us ignorant women
Just what we ought to do.

But while we see the humor,
And understand the play,
We’ll rise to the occasion
And greet the glorious day.
So come, my fellow citizens,
A cheer from every throat —
The second of November
We go to cast our vote!

October 24th, 1920.
