dedicated to feminists

my version of the
helen reddy song "i am

inspired by a cartoon
in my female boss'
office that celebrated  
the 'downfall of men"
with the last line in the
cartoon being "men, if
you can't join 'em, beat

so i paid tribute in my
own special way...
i am woman

i am woman hear me bitch
as i try to strike  it rich
and make it in the world like any man

i'll kill my embryo
and step on anybody's toes
unil i make the world understand

oh if you abuse my rights
on your parade i'll rain
i'm willing to pay the price
for my own personal gain

if i have to i will do anything
right or wrong i am incorrigible
i am woman

men, if you can't join 'em beat 'em
