Patent leather Mary Jane’s
Their feet bound in black button ups,
The nuns with Cesar Chavez
Fought for rights for human beings.
If we protested segregation;
Focusing less, on faith in god,
While instead, liberating the nation.
One even wore pink tennis shoes,
Saying, “Feedback baby, ask the suits why?”
A few married childhood sweethearts,
The rest mostly turned out gay.
