FAK

I’m nobody’s baby.  I’m everybody’s girl.  I’m the queen of nothing.  I’m the king of the world.

 

This is what I’m listening to today.  And this is how I feel today.  I’m not your baby.  I’m not yours at all.

Second fiddle is a position I just won’t play.

I don’t have to be a queen, playing behind the throne, controlling the puppet strings.  I don’t have to give anyone else the illusion of power or sharing or cooperation.

I may choose to sometimes.

But not today.

Today I’m the king of the world.

And I reject the gendered associations of that language.
