On The Boss’s Time

In Rockwell's defiant Rosie the Riveter painting, 
she knows to listens to herself, there's a time 
for sacrifice and a time for self-suffice with 
rolled-up sleeves she gives yields and builds 
alongside the guilds of Roses, Daisys, Lilys-the ladies
who miss their husbands so much they live in their
hardhats, assembly lines, sports and industry, using
his tools, mixed with the missed blessings of companions
over here, over here, please be here when he's over 
there are ways she will survive for her greater good
for she doubts of a whole union for him and her again
in Rockwell's defiant painting, Rosie the Riveter.

The painting, ROSIE THE RIVETER by Norman Rockwell, can be viewed here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosie_the_Riveter#mediaviewer/File:RosieTheRiveter.jpg
