good ol’ backwards North Dakota

 

wouldn’t want to be a woman in

North Dakota,

cause’ choice just ain’t happenin’ there.

 

nah,

if you’re a woman who gets raped in good ol’

backwards

North Dakota,

since they just shut down the last abortion

clinic,

all those bible thumping,

christ screaming, pro-lifers,

will be telling you to give birth

to a constant memory of the man who

raped you,

because they fucking said so.

 

wouldn’t want to be a woman in

don’t-need-your-thumbs-to-live-here

North Dakota,

because i’d be unable to decide what to do with

my own goddamned body,

due to the fact that the

“heaven”

seeking

hillbillies

want me to kill my dreams of having a career

before settling down with a kid,

so they can feel like they did their

“god”

good.

 

wouldn’t want to be a woman in North Dakota,

unless i had enough money to get on the

quickest fucking train

out of there

& gee willikers,

doesn’t that just feel fucking dandy

in “the land of the free?”
