WOMEN ARE PEOPLE!
Who writes all your letters. You frequently praise
Her poise and good sense; well, she wants it, she says."
"Do you think that her judgment or mine is the ripest?"
He asked. "Must I learn how to vote from my typist?"
"Well, then," she went on, "all the teachers at school
Are for it."
He laughed. "I have found as a rule
That all of the unmarried women I've known
Want nothing so much as a home of their own;
If all of your teachers were married, you'd note
A striking decrease in their wish for the vote."
"Many teachers are married," she started to say,
But he begged she would not contradict in that way.
