Entitlement – Mrs, Miss or Ms?

Why do people get in such a tizz
When I ask to be addressed as Ms?
Use of the term in conversation
Made sense before emancipation.
No hint of sexual revolution
In trying to avoid confusion
And the considerable distress
Caused by inappropriate address.

True in the 20th century
The domestic penitentiary
Has opened wide its confining gates.
Women are no longer seen as mates
Of men who needed to be labeled.
Instead we all of us have been enabled
To choose between Miss, Mrs or Ms,
Which makes it clear – It’s my name! Not his!
