Young women poised in their full glory.

While others are allowed to tell them why they’re worthy.

Anger driven men when women refuse

Oh, that’s ok I didn’t want you anyway

But he’s mad because I was the one who walked away

Sittin’ here in their voluptuous folds

Masculinity walks by and says, dayummmm girl you look thick

But behind closed doors, fat girls make me sick.

With stretch marks to add to her gorgeous physique
