Isoflavones and Black Cohosh

 
 
 



Speaking frankly, I have to say
Isoflavones and Black Cohosh
Have improved my average day
(Though saying why would be rather gauche)

They say we've made strides in our Women's Rights
I say that those sayers have got it wrong
The research on hormones is so bad it bites
Endure PMS? Sure, but tell me how long!

Male doctors waste research on menopause?
Level a mood swing? Pick up our "downs"?
You'd think productivity would be enough cause,
But apparently not for those chauvinist clowns.

Doctors won't speak about "women things"
Though it ruins two weeks out of every four.
The work force must deal with emotional swings,
And we with the bloating, the pain, and much more.

Left on our own to medicate
We return to the lore of the herb and the witch
Herbs to help certain things not to come late
Natural remedies against being a bitch.

So speaking frankly, I have to say
Isoflavones and Black Cohosh
Have improved my average day
(Though saying why would be terribly gauche).
