A Poem Off The Cuff Right Now

every day i wish my life away
if i were reborn again
i would live a different way
maybe id be born a girl hooray

to play with dolls and prams
not guns and noisey drums
just sindy and barbie
not bloody action man

playing hopskotch in the school yard
not rugby and have to tackle hard
playing skipping rope
not acting tough and look like a dope

oh if i were born a girl
i would live in a different world
wearing frilly skirts
and doing twirls.
