Because I Wore Red

Cover Image

Because I wore red and

I dared to stray from the path and

I went into the wrong neck of the

woods they tell me it was my own fault,

that I was 'asking for it'


Because I was naive and

spoke to a stranger when I should have

just kept walking

they tell me I brought this upon myself


What did I expect to happen?

My dress was too alluring.

I guess I should have just stayed

in my house, should've known better

than to be in the woods in broad

daylight bringing my elderly grandmother

some rolls.


I didn't realize this would happen

all because I dared

to wear red.
