"Oh for days pre-menopausal,
when life was 'of course' and not 'maybe.'
When a PATCH was a place to pick berries,
and CHANGE meant a clean diaper for baby.

"When a HOT FLASH was just an announcement
that set all the news wires humming,
and a PILL didn't bring back your girlhood,
it just kept more babies from coming."
