For today’s prompt, make a statement the title of your poem and either respond to or expand upon the title. Some example titles might tryinclude: “A Date Which Will Live in Infamy;” “Guns Don’t Kill People, I Do;” “This Is Your Brain on Drugs;” “Smile for the Camera,” and “Be Kind Rewind.” Of course, there’s an incredible number of possible titles; pick one and start writing 🙂 (from http://www.poetrypasta.wordpress.com)
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? (!)
