Little Woman For Adult Contest

I tried real hard to hide them, underneath a cotton canottiera 
I was an awkward girl of thirteen and the boys well, they could be so mean  
They taunted me with no mercy  
“I can’t go to school no more” this was my battle cry 
She knowingly took me into the five and ten and helped me shop for my first bra 
The next day at school, I sat a little straighter 
Walked a little different 
Talked a little louder 
And when they suggested I play slingshot 
That was the day I knew I hated them boys; 
Lucky for me I outgrew my hatred
The day Lucio suggested we put our desks together
And study math.
