Fears of girls


What if your knickers fell down if the elastic wore out
What if your stockings got pulled off the suspenders?
What if you laddered  your stockings
What if you bled through your summer school dress?
What if men looked at your breasts? Not that I had any myself.
What if you forgot to confess the only mortal sin you ever committed– being alive?
Then they say women are not as talented or creative as men
Would men wear suspender belts?
