The Secretary chant is about a woman who is dehumanized by her work. She talks about her body as if it was office equipment. The poem is very good, the author uses words that stand for other things. It is sad, the woman doesn't feel like a woman anymore. She even begins to talk as if she was a machine. She talks about things that woman experience, such as having a baby, but she ends up giving birth to a baby xerox machine. I don't think she thinks she will ever get her womanhood back. So she files it away.
