They Said


they said:
watch what you wear they said,
you could be a victim they said.
watch how you dress they said,
they'll get the wrong impression they said.
watch what color you wear they said,
kids will be mean they said.
watch what you do they said,
they'll create labels they said.
watch how much skin you show they said,
they'll take you for granted they said.
watch who you talk to they said,
you are who you hang out with they said.
girls and boys together they said,
the other way is disturbing they said.
she looks sad they said,
but she'll be okay they said.
her wrists are cut they said,
"darn cat!" they said.
her grades are failing they said,
she must not be trying they said.
we caught her dead they said,
we don't know what happened they said.
"rest in peace." they said,
but it's better without her they said.
we kind of forgot about her they said.
