Shady Bitch

I’ve been called a nigger in the summer
Then beaner until late fall
But winter til mid spring
No one guesses wtf I am at all!

Cause I’m a shady bitch
Shape shifting witch
I am rainbow colored inside and out
People always try to figure me out

They ask if I’m Hawaiian Middle Eastern
Mexican part Korean or a quarter Jew
(Nice hair)
I say no I’m not but thanks a lot
I do enjoy their food

In the shade cause I’m a bitch
A shade privileged bitch
I am rainbow colored inside and out
Don’t even try to figure me out

I’m black I’m white I’m native
I might just be a smidge of something else
(Who knows)
But one things for sure my heart is pure
I’m just trying to be myself

And still I get called a nigger in the summer
Then beaner through late fall
But I never get called a wetback
Because I’m to light and too tall

Oh Yes I said it!
          Winter through spring
Don’t you forget it
           I could pass for half anything

I’m so shady
           Shape shifting and rainbow colored
I could be anybody’s
           Sister cousin or mother

I keep my ass out of the sun
To minimize exposure to racism

Ain’t that some shit?
I’m such a shady bitch
