#%ck Off!

cold cruel words

spew like crap from her mouth

she pleasantly purrs

as they come gushing out

finding her joy

in causing somebody pain

a used-up boys toy

acting insane

sure, I may be old

and ok, overweight

but you're overbold

and sorely overrated

I have no desire

to play at your game

leave me alone

and please go away

I have left that behind

I'm not looking back

stay in your lane

and off of my back

keep your affairs

in your own backyard

your desperate smells

you're trying too hard

you don't like my rhymes

think I feel too much

after all of this time

you still use hate as your crutch

I feel sorry for you

and your need to be pretty

you don't have a clue

so you have to be shitty

grow up little girl

the world doesn't owe you a thing

next time, try dating a man

who's not wearing a ring

yeah, you're pretty tough with that phone in your hand

    Mic drop! I feel like you just won a rap battle even though I know it’s not a light hearted subject. Hugs and a high five 🙌 my friend
