Defend Our Girls and Protect Our Daughters
Our mother was once a girl,
It is our duty to protect and defend
All women against the quick sand
Of the sick snakes that can steal, curl,
Maim, violate and poison our daughters.
Protect our angelic babies all the time,
Against the ills, the sneaky chime
Of the sad and corrupted killers,
Who prey on our defenseless and vulnerable society.
Yes, all of our children should be safe and happy.
Let’s defend our girls everywhere.
They deserve better treatment,
Better protection under the current atmosphere.
Respect them, love them; keep them beautiful and brilliant,
And do not stop teaching them the Ten Commandments.
Young girls are the future mothers of tomorrow,
Do not bring pain, nightmares, sadness and sorrow
To the most wonderful masterpieces of the Creator.
It is our God-given duties and rights to protect them all the time,
At the first squeak of the clock and at the last sigh of the holy chime.
