Why do you say that as if it’s a bad
Because I don’t behave
the way you say I should?
Because I wear my combat boots
along with my underwire bra
Because I don’t believe that you should have the power to whatever,
Whoever you choose, while I stand demure
ly with downcast eyes
Because I don’t want to grow up to be my mother
Or even my father.
Because I don’t want to grow up
Because I wear my attitude
as easily as my eyeliner
Because I’d rather be my own bitch
Than your whore
Oh, did you mean it as an insult?
, that’s the nicest thing anyone’s ever said to me.
If you dislike what I’m doing enough to use that word,
it at me with a glare,
Infuse it with such bile and hate
I’ve gotta be doing something right
