Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash. Leonard Cohen

Call me whore
I'm not afraid to explore
My sexuality with him
Or with her
But with you, I defer
Your eyes can undress me
But you'll never possess me

Call me bitch
Yeah, that's rich
'Cause I speak my mind
And I'm not always kind
You can't dismiss me
So you try and dis' me

Call me a cunt
'Cause I won't do what you want
I'm nobody's slave
Don't tell me how to behave
You know you can't tame me
And I won't let you shame me

Think I'm a whore you can buy?
Go on, fool, you just try
This bitch'll bark loud
She is smart and she's proud 
I'm not feelin' contrite
This cunt's got teeth that can bite

Parts of that are very frightening.
