What a crafts woman like me wants….. By Ellen O’Neal
I want to make a pot round and true;
and paint a design that captures the real me and you;
I want to carve a guitar that strums perfect electric bugaloo.
I want to stretch a hide across the divide and lace it tight
so we can drum our circle back right
I want to harmonize, diva-ize, incentivize
I want to connect the world in a happy dance
Peace on earth with a groovy beat
Let our girls not be just meat, but to create and feel their power and grace without shame or guilt
Let our boys find belonging, gentleness,and their voices for peace, hope, and love
Let them dance the streets with their own funky beats
Lets get them some drums, guitars, and enpower our stars.
I’ll find my own beat and crank out my own jam and get you tapping your feet
We can share too with you and make some one to tre harmony
I want to move your soul and watch you losen up your control
and enjoy each others simple pleasures.
We are after all each other’s treasures.
Let’s inspire our girls and boys to rock our world with new masterpieces.
Some slow and moving; some catchy and boppy; others fast and keen;
They get to create the newest scene
and deserve some better scene
But they will know what I mean
