It’s possible that Penelope forgot to take her pills
She’s petulant, and confident, and breaking all the rules.
Particularly proud today – pesky, posh and prude
Passing people boastfully with blatant attitude.
Patriarchal society is narrow minded in perspective
They think a woman should be passive, pristine, polite and perfect
Positive… Petite… Polished, pretty and profound
Or else they wouldn’t bother even having her around.
These standards are impossible, improbable, imprudent…
A woman can’t live up to that and logically she shouldn’t.
Perturbed by all the poppycock the populace expects
Penelope works pointedly to puzzle and perplexed.
Powerful, passionate, persuasive and proactive
She’s positively brilliant, resilient, sharp and active
She challenges the patriarchy proudly without fail…
With help from other women, she’ll most certainly prevail
