Madness

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Playing football with my friends the other day,
when frustratingly, to my dismay,
a man and his daughter taking a bike ride,
-he was 5 foot tall and five foot wide-
stopped fro a rest where we were playing,
I couldn’t stand the madness he was saying.
“Girl’s shouldn’t play football, it’s a man’s game”,
in front of his young daughter, he had no shame.
I know we’re right, I know he’s wrong,
and it won’t hold me back for long,
people like that, we don’t need their support,
believe me I’m far from distraught,
but still these attitudes drive me insane,
just shut your mouth and play the game.
