Come, Lets go, Play Football

Come, lets go, play football

Play in the heavy rain

I used to play when I was little

Wanna play yet again

Too old to play

I know you'll say

Trying to hold me back

And I try in vain

To gather the courage

That I so clearly lack

Girls shouldn't play

Football or any other ball for that matter

The sooner I get it hammered into my head the better

Head would have long succumbed

But my heart finds

Such a notion so repulsive

That it vomits it out

Not long after

I've been made to drink it

They call my heart a rebel

An incarnation of the devil

For it finds out the vice in their virtue

And the good in what they call evil.

Ticks its quite strange that all over the world the great humanity is not interested in what a human carries over the shoulders. They are more interested in what a human carries between the legs or what is lacking there. From my side footballs to you and balls to them!!

Makusr thanks for stopping by. Its just one of the long list of discriminating rules that girls around the globe have to endure.

This is great. I've always believed that a girl can do whatever she wants to do. Stereotyping is a no-no in my mind.
