from A Poet’s Journey
Having a little fun in honor of International Women’s Day
Please don’t call me bossy.
I’m just the gifted one,
who knows the secret of success,
and always gets things done.
I’m not the kind to wait in line.
I know just what to do.
So please don’t call me bossy,
unless I tell you to
Bossy Girl is one of only two children’s poems published under my real name. It was inspired by my daughter Kristina who is the boss at work, and my granddaughter who according to Kristina is the boss at home. I intended to post this yesterday but did not want to be included in a protest.
