Phil Roberts 1957 (Melbourne)

Demands immediate obedience,
She will not tolerate rebels
Who try to mount a defence.

Defence against her tyranny
Her rights for only women,
For some of us still believe
Equality must include men.

But She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed
Will not give an inch,
On the issue of what is fair
She simply will not flinch.

The Bitch-Queen-Fuehrer
Is another name she uses,
For when this evil tyrantess
Is committing great abuses.

Her name is legion, so they say
Big Sister is still one more,
She commits great injustices
Which freedom fighters abhor.

Will not ever change her mind,
She's put the women in charge
Not by accident, but design.

There is little chance for men now
That was part of her evil plan,
Now men are third-class citizens
With all women in command.
