To Aunt Het

I do declare, it's hardly fair to get a joke on Het
For on every hand she has to stand being called a suffragette.
The Anti's scoff, but then hats they'll doff as she motors about the town
And her flaming car will be seen afar to add to her renown.
When the vote is won and the talk is done the jokes she will not resent,
For you can bet we'll all vote for Het, when she runs for President!"

by Margaret Olmsted Ogden

This poem was written in 1914, 93 fucking years ago. I. Am. Just. Saying.
