CHARACTER

CHARACTER

You're a girl 
and you'd better not forget
that when you step over the threshold of your house
men will look askance at you.
When you keep on walking down the lane
men will follow you and whistle.
When you cross the lane and step onto the main road
men will revile you and call you a loose woman.

If you've go no character
you'll turn back, 
and if not
you'll keep on going,
                as you are going now.
