Wanda Why Aren't You Dead
By Wanda Coleman

wanda when are you gonna wear your hair down

wanda why ain't you rich
wanda you know no man in his right mind want a
ready-made family

wanda why are you so angry
how come your feet are so goddamn big
can't you afford to move out of this hell hole
if i were you were you were you
wanda what is it like being black
i hear you don't like black men
tell me you're ac/dc. tell me you're a nympho. tell me you're
into chains
wanda i don't think you really mean that
you're joking. girl, you crazy
wanda what makes you so angry

wanda i think you need this
wanda you have no humor in you you too serious
wanda i didn't know i was hurting you
