I Love Overeducated Women

My father’s parents
Met in high school
And dated while in college
And supported one another
As they each earned
College degrees

Mom’s mother
Moved to the city
To study
Before earning her degree
And supporting her family
During the Great Depression
As a bank manager
And the town’s only

My mother
And all eight,
Yes eight,
Aunts attended
College and earned

This tradition
Continued with my
Sisters, cousins, nieces,
And their kids
Because education
Enriches life

I love

Do you love overeducated women?

I would like to hear from you
