No Shame

I have no shame,
I get discouraged all the time.
My workplace being full of men,
Who always have something to say.

I have no shame,
I am a victim of sexism,
“Weak” is all they say,
This is what I won’t tolerate.

“Weak this” and “weak that”,
Do you think I care?
They don’t know what they’re in for,
I’m not ashamed of my gender.

They had me working overtime,
And I rather be fired,
I tell it to the big boss,
He says, “It doesn’t matter.”

To avoid all this,
I had to quit my job,
I had to show them,
I had no shame.
