Here is my humble Ode to Genre Women. I’ve only addressed a few today but I might finish this in another posting.

sigourney

A woman in sci-fi is not very meek,

She’s high-tech and crafty, a cool-headed geek.

Whether princess or pilot, she outwits pursuers,

Alters dystopia, and takes down bad rulers.

Xena

A fantasy woman has thunderous thighs,

Long flowing hair, big breasts, and fierce eyes.

She wields a long sword, a spear or a saber,

And the fate of the world depends on her labor.

 cate

Unless she’s a fairy, a witch, maid or queen,

In which case she’s smaller and softer and lean.

Her weapons are subtle with some kind of magic;

Her motive is love, her history quite tragic.

angela lans

In mysteries the women are victims or cops,

And sometimes a killer with poisonous chops.

She can be an old lady who solves bloody crimes,

Or a toughened detective who shoots multiple times.

ava gardner

In noir all the ladies are dangerous dames;

They smolder with sex and want to play games.

They’ve all got a past and can watch a man die,

But have a soft spot for a hard private eye.

That’s it for now, and I hope you enjoyed these rotten rhymes. Got more any more genre lady rhymes in mind?

Have a great week.
