Nice girls and the Not so Very Nice

All the nice girls
with the right curls
following their hearts
The ones with no dents in their head
Adventures of snow peaks and red earth

They talk the walk that satisfies
justifying all that is said
Making the crowd sit back and admire
Some even tossing out the silver spoon
Volunteering overseas for Red Cross

The nice girls are those that
ask the questions that spur wonder
Beauty admired for not being skin deep
Inspiring by going against the odds
Intelligent creatures that are understood

The not so nice girls
with too many curls
dancing ballet in high heels
Squatting in a museum no money for rent
social etiquette and decorum all spent

Speaking up about things not so nice
not heeding when to be quiet
Annoying with a darker need
Seeing the full length mirror of life
Not so nice girls seem to finish last

Girls with middle names of forget
not fitting the neat private bill
awkward in their own skin
taken by heartbreak against their will
not so nice girls bare all with nothing to lose

The nice girls live accepted lives
not quite perfect but so close to it
outwardly keeping things in life complete
Debating with finesse and fine intellect
Nice girls have soothing sweet sex

Not so nice girls go against the grain
perfect in their struggle in vain
inward intuition finding words to speak
Voicing a truth that ain’t often pretty
Not so nice girls fuck to the souls of their feet

I think nice girl fits me like a glove
and not so nice I wear deep inside myself
A duality that has perplexed me most of my life
But today for the first time it gives me no strife
I give up the comparison and walk away from the fight
