She's an hourglass with a wide, wide waste
I don't think you understand that you're the same
Smirked, scrabbler, sandsifter
You took in her inspiration and statistics
And then you took her name and gave it back defaced
Ridiculed and twisted

You took her inspiration and her spirit
You gave her Dot Cotton poise
Pitiful and twisted
An underwritten life
But she was the silence once the noise had passed
The swirling at the bottom of the glass
The words after your voice had died

You made the world a really awful place
You mocked and bullied people who were frightened
Too scared to go outside
I think that you need more opportunities
For imaginative play
Do you think an hour a day
Is something you could set aside?
