It Could Have Been You

Isn't it funny,

How the same girls who just "turnt up"

Can be the same girls,

Who call a pregnant teen a "slut",


Or how the same guys,

Who urge their buddies to go have sex,

Can be the first to laugh at the guy,

Who gets the dreaded phone call from an ex.


Birth-control isn't always reliable,

Sometimes condoms break,

And sometimes it is all forgotten,

Because we all make mistakes,


Before you go judge,

Another person's affair,

Just be sure to remember,

It could have been you, there.
