Boys Will Be Boys

In fifth grade, sexism was the dress code.
My spaghetti straps were “distracting”
And my shorts were too short.
They wouldn’t be able to focus,
But it wasn’t their fault.
Boys will be boys.

In eighth grade, sexism changed.
Catcalling was just a compliment,
I should’ve felt flattered.
Sexual harassment was the hormones,
But it wasn’t their fault.
Boys will be boys.

In eleventh grade, sexism changed.
Cornering me in the parking lot,
Following me to my car,
Groping me in the hallway,
But it wasn’t their fault, right?
Because boys will be boys.
