Checkered Ties

Green-and-black checkered ties,

Golden cufflinks, the shape of a shield.

An expensive watch of a famous maker,

A well-fitting suit.

These are the things that I remember,

People telling me, 'You're a girl,

Boys wear these things.'

But I also remember thinking:

Yeah, I'm a bloody girl, I can

Wear whatever the hell I want.

The End
