Yes, Mrs. P
[He]
But she would have a problem from day one: “First Man” won’t do
To designate her consort, and "First Gentleman"'s absurd!
[She]
It barely matters what he's called—or was called hitherto
I'd happily accept whatever title he preferred

[He]
Of course you would—as long as Madame Wifey wins the vote!
She'd give him minor tasks like choosing pictures for the walls
[She]
Or fetching Chinese take-out while she keeps the world afloat.
If that's too dull, he might show tourists round the White House halls

[He]
I'd love to see "her highness" facing Putin in a skirt
Or hectoring in high-pitched tones some oil-rich sheikh or prince
[She]
A little touch of estrogen can change the worst stuffed shirt
As proved by Cleopatra, Good Queen Bess, and others since

[He]
It’s just not done (at least not yet)! Who knows what she might say!
Ars longa, vita brevis
