    Cheese it, da tan caps is commin’!

    Gender Outlaw

    I wanna be a gender outlaw
    I wanna wear a big ass pink Stetson hat
    But I ain’t gonna chew no tobacco, bub
    Perched up there on that great big ‘ol white horse
    Riding into town with a big grin
    When people stare I won’t mind

    I wanna be a gender outlaw
    I want people to smile back when I smile at them
    But I ain’t gonna join no ladies auxiliary, ma’am
    When our eyes meet they won’t look away
    I want to get the joke, not be the joke
    I’ll shoot down ever prejudice and superstition
    I’ll be the hero of everyone in town

    I wanna be a gender outlaw
    I want the bad guys to be afraid of me for a change
    But I won’t jump them in some back alley, mate
    And when it’s time to go, I won’t go quietly
    I want to leave in my own time and in my own way
    I won’t be afraid of no one
    I’ll gallop me into the sunset

    Yippe Ki Yay!

    Heheh :) Did you come up with that, or where is it from? does it have a melody!?


    Jessica replied:

    I just wrote it while looking at this picture. Ya know, it was, like, inspirational. :-)

    Did you want to put it to music? I like music, but I’ve never successfully integrated my music and my poetry.


    tigr replied:

    Well, it felt like song lyrics, so I assumed there ought to be some music! Not that I could point any out which would fit to it directly… would be great tho :) kinda like a Western song…
