A Spire-ing Feminists?

I found the girls sitting and contemplating this building,
the "Spire Cathedral" of Germany.

They were really deep in discussion when I thought
I should ask 'what was so intriguing'?
The geometric sections? The Romanesque detail?
The majestic balance of it all?
Uh, no,...
what were they debating?

"Did the lady in the front push that man over? Or did he fall?"
"Did someone put him there like that?"
"Did that lady trip him?"

The debate went on, and on, and on.
They came to the conclusion that he might very
well "have been pushed over if the woman in front
was angry with him".
Or
"It might have been a rainy, windy night when he fell over".

Oh how my heart fluttered with
an equal amount of amusement, and sadness.
Where did they come up with that????
