The ways that I conjured to maneuver through school days. Kitchen. Chicken. Chicken. Kitchen. Why can’t I differentiate between the two? All the kids already know I’m new. Whatever am I to do. I’m fresh off the banana boat from Hey-T. My accent be the death of me. I’m dodging the bullets of bullies. Avoiding the heat to keep the cool that a girl like me needs to focus in grade school. Until I discovered the power of the pad and a pen when patrolling the bus. If you think that you’re tough and you want to act rough, I’ll turn in your name for referrals. Wow. How the fear on the face of my bully doth soothes me. Who’s the bully now?
