"Why don't you have a boyfriend?" men ask me,
as if there must be something wrong
with a pretty woman being single.
"I'm independent," I tell them,
when what I really want to say
"Why do men constantly cheat on their partners?"
"Why do my friends' boyfriends flirt with me when we're alone?"
"Why do men constantly degrade women in their speech?"
"Why do you think you can sleep with me because you bought me a drink?"
THAT'S what I want to say;
the real reason I don't have a boyfriend.
Because I've been taught time
and time and time again
throughtout my entire life
that men are dogs
and women are the bones they
think they deserve.
Sometimes, ya just gotta let the emotions out.
