A Modern Proposal Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


It has been said that the feminist movement is the trueA
solution of the mother in law problemB
Sylvia my dear I would be yours with pleasureC
All that you are seems excellent to meD
Except your mother who's much more at leisureC
Than mothers ought to beD
Find her a fad a job an occupationE
Eugenics dancing uplift yes or crimeF
Set her to work for her EmancipationE
That takes a lot of timeF
Or if the suffrage doctrine fails to charm herC
There are the Antis rather in her lineG
Guarding the Home from Maine to AlabamaH
Would keep her out of mineG
