White Girls from Elizabeth

White girls from Elizabeth
are totally lame.
The live for promises that
they will never collect.

No guy is going to come
to take them to the city
no college going to write them back
no dream jobs in the offing.

Daddy won’t get sober
and take you home for summer
will never lose the five pounds
and slip into the red dress.

The rubber broke but you’ll get lucky
this time.

White girls from Elizabeth
are totally lame.
