I Like Girls

Rosie Riveter - Mom Loves Life Tattoo

I like funny girls and serious girls too
Girls who do crosswords and work at the zoo

I like girls on bicycles and girls who wear hats
Girls who ride horses and girls who keep cats

I like girls with glasses and girls with tattoos
Girls with pierced noses and girls who read the news

I like girls who play guitars and sing in girl bands
Girls who make their own religion and girls with healing hands

I like girl poets and artists and geeks
And sci-fi fans and embalmers and writers and freaks
And doctors and nurses and administrators and cooks
And pilots and mothers and girls with good looks

I like girls who are intelligent and girls who are kind
And won’t take your shit and know their own mind

I like girls who like to dance
And I like girls who like romance
I like girls with bare feet
And girls who run round in the street

I like girls who paint their toes
And girls who wear unusual clothes
And girls with safety pins in their nose

And girls who go on protest marches
And girls who pluck their eyebrow arches
And girls with hair that’s straight or curled
And girls who want to save the world

I like girls! What more can I say
Life without girls would be boring and grey
Boys are cool too but in a different way
And that’s a poem for another day.
