~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


skunk oil and
goose grease
to "cure"
the affliction,

those sore,
dampen your
throat with a
teaspoon of
sugar and
turpentine,

bit by the
rattlesnake,
drink your
teaspoon of
ammonia diluted
in water, that
should cure you,

vinegar and salt
blended into a
powder keeps
the mosquitoes
away,

gunpowder your
warts away, then
write from the
frontier day,

Sunday Services
break frontier
monotony,

exercising her
Goddess-given
2nd Amendment
Right (write)
with a gun she
knows how to
handle,

gunpowder your
warts away, write
from the frontier
day...

B r i l l i a n t !! Bet you, like me, have read a lot of pioneer
women's diaries. Talk about tough!! All those rivers and creeks
had to be crossed. Babies lost. Not to mention, there was nowhere
to pee without being seen. Had to get other women to spread out their skirts to make a wall. 'Interesting' times. . .but you know what? I am betting there was a Sage who added laughter and
gussied ragged outfits with wildflowers and glittering bits of
rock that she glued on with leftover flapjack batter...be fun to
speculate further. Gimme a 'call'! Pea Hooznutsbout Sweetwater

I am in awe of women such as these..their strength,their stamina,their inner power..indeed where would those men have been if such women were not manifest in their lives.
This is a marvelous tribute to women that deserve a medal of honour..well at least in MY book!
Exceptional piece Sage..

Got anything for getting the smell of bleach off of hands, LOL? I will try that gunpowder for the warts, if I die though, I will come back and haunt you...;) Ed
