Killing The Female Stereotype - Poem by Violet Llewellyn

You think I'm weak
That all I do is twirl
In a dress
Just because I'm a girl

I can tell you now
That that's not right
I'm one girl
Who knows how to fight

I don't care if I break a nail
Or if my hair is out of place
And you'll rarely find me in the bathroom
Putting makeup on my face

I don't spend every night with my friends
Gossiping on the phone
And don't be surprised if you find me
Spending Saturday night all alone

Now you might say I'm joking
But I don't care what you think
I could kill you so many ways
Before you had time to blink
