Asking For It

By Amy Thomson

Short, tall, skinny, skinny.
Smart, dumb, pretty, pretty.
I’m just a bored girl
begging for attention.
I’m just a mean bitch,
pushing his detention.
I’m just a dumb slut,
asking for oppression.
I’m just a loud cunt,
screaming for progression.
Dark street,
short skirt.
Asking for it,
asking for it.
Red cup,
drunk night.
Asking for it,
asking for it.
Either way I’m getting hurt.
Red lip,
wide hip,
I can hear his pants unzip.
Bare face,
court case,
Stupid not to carry mace.
Stay safe,
stay inside.
Rebel grrrls will be denied:
Sympathy, security,
sanity, stability,
consideration, contemplation, cerebration, cogitation.
The presence of my pussy means I’m
asking for it
asking for it.
