HALF YOUR AGE

HALF YOUR AGE

A Poem by Valerie Dean Belew
"

THIS LYRIC WAS WRITTEN TO A PERSONAL ENEMY WHO HAS ATTEMPTED TO DISCREDIT ME IN PUBLIC WRITING GROUPS. IT DOES NOT REFLECT MY SENTIMENT ABOUT MEN IN GENERAL. I LOVE GUYS, SO TAKE THIS WRITING AS WHAT IT IS: A COUNTER ATTACK.

"

 

HALF YOUR AGE
 
A parody, to the tune of Kid Rock’s HALF YOUR AGE
 
Hey now darling, you thought it was all fun and games, running round telling people what my motives were in writing the songs I write, acting like I wanted or needed your attention, or the attention of any other horny old man. I guess you felt you needed some attention. The lyrics were meant to put the focus on child sexual abuse, not me, but since you have managed to put negative focus on me by sharing my stuff with the wrong people, and with the wrong explanation, I’m about to bring up the fact that your own tactics feel awful familiar to women who are survivors of child sexual abuse, coming from a woman who is young enough to be your OWN daughter, even in menopause. I guess you thought I was going to just sit there and take it all on the chin, but honey, I’m a song writer, and this darling, is where you end, and the song begins.
 
HALF YOUR AGE
 
We’ve found younger guys
Who treat us better
They don’t accuse us of doing things
We’re not
When I sing my songs
It don’t upset em
They’re half your age
And twice as hott
 
I've found someone now
who can light my fire
He don't b***h
about my story's plot
When I sing my songs
He don't demean me
He's half your age
and twice as hott
 
 
Oh, he wakes up every morning
And he gives me some
Doesn’t b***h about the writing
That exposes scum
I’m his wild woman
And he’s my little rock n roll
 
 
We’ve found younger guys
Who treat us better
They don’t accuse us of doing things
We’re not
When they read our stuff
They don’t  misjudge it
They’re half your age
And twice as hott
 
 
They’ve got the strength of youth
And the force of Niagara
Don’t need to make use
Of a truck of viagra
Don’t have the shakes, and I just wanted you to know
That we’ve found younger guys
Who love us better
Kelli's man don’t b***h
Bout what she's not
When she writes her stuff
It makes him want her
He’s a fourth your age
And still gets hot
 
He don’t start trouble cause He don’t need trouble
He don’t have wrinkles
Or the shakes, or stumble
We're lovin our men
And we're lovin the testosterone flow
 
Kelli's got someone
whocan love her better
He don’t accuse her
Of doing things she’s not
If you’re having thoughts
You’d best forget em
He’s a fourth your age
And twice as  hot

Author's Note

This lyric was written in response to a man, who happens to be old enough to be my father, who felt the need to spread rumors and damage my reputation in a very small and conservative town. I guess he wanted to shut me up, because my lyrics are just too real, and honest. But guess what??? It didn't work. They don't call female pit bulls bitches for nothing...LOL....

Wow! You shoot straight from the hip. No wonder I like you and your songs, poems, etc. You put that guy in his place, by telling it like it is. It is sad that a man can be so insecure, immature, and threatened by a strong woman; especially when she speaks out against abuse of any kind. You get your point across that you don't need nor want his BS. I really like this fiesty song.

And you look so sweet and innocent in that picture. Lady you have some brass in that back and I love it!
I really like this lyric. It is sassy to the point, great rhymn and rhythm. You remind me of that little white she pitbull up the street. She walks all over the larger male. Good going. If I ever need a tell-off, I am hiring you!

LOL! Great stuff! You certainly put him in his place with these words! To me it isn't real life writing if one isn't real about it.
