It’s not a fair game
When she’s fair game
Because she’s on the game.
If you dare shame
Those girls who play a fair game
Not in their name,
Do you pretend to care, came
On your white chargers to save damsels who were never in distress
And when they refused to be
Your ever grateful princesses,
Took pride in their work
With its perks and its stresses
Then they were fair game
They should bear blame
If their game
Ends in death.
She wasn’t fair game
For murder, injustice and hate
You can call her a whore
But her life was worth so much more
Than her hourly rate.
