A Ditty from the Perspective of a Victim-Blamer. Fun!

Art by Zoey Michaels and Natalie Camara

You're an Evil drama queen.

Stop telling me your fake news.

It could have been much worse-

At least he didn't rape you!

It doesn't matter what you said.

It's really black and white.

It's not worth the paperwork.

Time to give up your fight.

Doesn't matter what you said.

You're just on a mission

To get more attention.

You're so naïve.

You should have known better.

You really don't get it.

If you sleep with a shark,

You're going to get bit.

Change your hair color,

Or get a new tattoo,

But you made your bed-

You gotta lie in it too.

I think he's kind of cute.

He's funny, and so charming.

You're blatant accusations went too far.

The nerve is really quite alarming.

It doesn't matter what you said.

We won't believe your lies

It can't be all that bad.

Didn't he apologize?

It doesn't matter what you said.

You basically said yes.

Don't make a bad decision,

Then make me clean up your mess.

You should have known better.

You really don't get it.

If you sleep with a shark,

You're going to get bit.

Change your hair color,

Or get a new tattoo,

But you made your bed-

You gotta lie in it too.

Please stop acting so defenseless.

Actions MUST have consequences.

La la la la la...

That's what you get for sleeping with sharks...
