Wise owl knows best

sleepy-owl

A wise owl knows when something is wrong, but as was recently pointed out in a comment posted on my blog “society is too distracted and disinterested.” However, this is usually the way it is and change can take a long while to occur.

Give thought to these popular song lyrics and make up your own mind. It’s a right word choice.

Portishead
I just want to be a woman
It’s all I wonna be is all woman

Neil Diamond
Girl you’ll be a woman soon
Soon you’ll need a man

Helen Reddy
I am woman hear me roar

Cliff Richard
She’s just a devil woman

Blah! Is this what you really want?

So let’s change English language and say no to woman and yes to a better word.

That word is Vef
