Misconceptions

A poem that sums up what WI is actually like versus some people’s misconceptions!


Misconceptions


‘Will you be singing Jerusalem?’ she asked with scorn


Well, on special occasions, but it’s not the norm


‘I expect you’ll be learning to make jam and curd’


Not really, I don’t know what it is you’ve heard


‘I know the WI is about all that is twee'


You clearly have no idea, it seems to me


Our membership covers all ages, young and old


We welcome all women into our fold


The stuff we do is interesting and fun


To be honest, I believe we can’t be outdone


For thought provoking speakers, fantastic crafts


Amazing parties and lots of laughs


We go on walks and trips to see shows


Book clubs, netball, anything goes


We campaign about things that really matter


And of course, love cake and a good old natter


The WI is about friendship


I’m sure you’ll agree


If you forget what you’ve heard and just come and see!
