Found Poem: Fight
Taylor Butts, Charlotte Murphree
 
He don't want a wife,
he want a dog.
She jump right up
do just what they say.
She never blink a eye.
It's worse than that, I think.
Women work.
Nobody fight for her.
 
She don't know, but us gon find out.
look like amazons.
She knock the man down.
Strong girl like her.
Good thing I ain't your damn wife.
They fight.
Nothing but death can keep them from it.
She begin to sing
You got to fight.
