Be Big Breasted

A poem I wrote in 1997

If you were a woman with big, full breasts,

would you be one to feel as if you were blessed?

As if having big boobs would make you feel proud,

do you feel you could flaunt them in front of a crowd?

Do you think you could be man enough to carry the weight,

of the burdens that come with having this trait?

You have to have strength in your mind, heart, and back,

to carry all that is included in this six pound pack.

Your security is always at everyone’s tests,

so I suggest to you keep your small breasts.
