They Don't Check Thighs

Written by: Lily Mayfield

They'll check my wrist
They'll look me in the eyes
I'll throw in a twist
They won't check my thighs

It'll be easier to cover
My dirty little secret

So easily hidden
No one will ever know
I've done the forbidden

I don't need a jacket
I wear pants everyday

When they see the blood
I'll blame it on my time
The blood will scud
My scars will be sublime
