Shanti Collins “Disabled”

It’s okay
You can say it
Don’t pretend
Or prance around it
Like you’re afraid you can’t pronounce it
If you can say
Then surely
Disabled should be a snap
Go for it, Yell it
And don’t hold back
Why is it the cats got your tongue
I’m telling you
You won’t offend me none
Don’t say differently abled
Or any other Baloney
Wow, well then
If you’re gonna say it like that
I take it all back !
