Why Do You Hate Me
When I was a strong teenage athlete in nineteen-seventy two,
Haters called me, "Attila the Hun", why did my appearance offend you?
I bothered no one, just a runner and swimmer,
Mean guys also told the overweight girls to be thinner,
So, girls shouldn't be fit and also shouldn't be fat,
Do you not see the hypocrisy in that?
Misogynists of the world, women are diminished in your eyes,
Doesn't matter to you when us women cried,
Your big mouths always shouted hatefully,
That I was a dog and you would never date me,
Just wanted you to know,
I've got a big heart that continues to grow.
