Sugar and Spice

No. I won’t BE NICE.
Don’t for a moment think
it’s not my right to ask the questions.

No. I will not SIT DOWN AND BEHAVE.
Do not speak to my protest
with that patronizing tone.

No. I will not quell my laugh.
Do not think your CONVICTION
changes my outrage.

No. I will not stop.
No. I will not stop.
No. I will not stop.

That’s what little girls are made of.
