COOL HER SASSY JETS
She posted on Facebook one day
dat she wuz allowed to come and go
as she pleased in high school
and dat it really didn’t mattah
if she wuz dere or not
cause latah she received
her GED in one day.
Don’t know how true dat is
but her general attitude can explain
why she’s flipping burgers
and flipping you da bird
every time you disagree wit her.
She’s wun smart aleck
hard headacting like wun know-it-all
and she’s raising your blood pressure
to new heights.
Da good ting dough is dat at least she’s working
and not sitting on wun couch
watching television all day
wit wun new babyas wun meal ticket
foa get all kine free social aid.
As to weadah she going turn da cornah
dat remains to be seen.
She’s wun rebel witout any meaningful claws
but still yet she like make kitty kine cat fight.
Moa den once
her maddah wen lament
dat she shouddah been wun boy.
It would be really good
if somehow life would kick her in da rear end
and make her wake up.
Den maybe wun lightbulb
going get turned on in her head
to make her cool her sassy jets.
