It Had to Have Been A MAN

By LC Van Savage

      It had to have been a woman hater
    The guy who invented that.
    A real angry chap, a true mandater
    Of high style from shoes to hat.

      I think he invented girdles and then
    Was thrilled when he saw they hurt,
    And insisted each maiden and doyenne
    Look indecent in a much too short skirt.

      But females really must take all the blame
    For letting this guy dictate
    That they should wear clothes which make them feel shame
    And cause pain they can't tolerate.

      This woman hater is really quite good
    At creating painful clothes
    But the lowest blow he dealt womanhood
    Was inventing pantyhose.
