Poetry Sunday: The Women

I wrote this in May 2005. Following my lovely Luddite friend's example, 50 points if you can call out the play on words.

The Women

Three days after Mama died
the women came
to my father’s house.

They said
they had come
to pray.

Rosary in one hand,
microwaved casserole
in the other.

Funny weapons
for predators.
