Here’s my statement!


How To Be A RealWoman

Know how to cook,
and use your rook,
and let me look
at other women.

Grow your hair,
get a perky pair,						
and never stare
at me.

Grow up.
Cheer up.
Do sit ups.
Stand up for me.
Shut up Valeri!

Ride a bike.
Know what I like.
And never try
to psyche me out.

Driving around,
don't make a sound
as I comment on
every woman around.

You need a round butt,
get your body "cut",
and on command,
act like a slut.

             Am I being heard?
			I hardly say a word.....
Make sure the coffee's stirred!

RealWomen don't cry.
RealWomen  aren't shy.
And they don't ask why! (?)

Get more educated,
and when we're 
socially situated,
don't act like we're together.

Wear your clothes tight.
Learn to drive right.
And why do you have to
write all the time? (!)
