    Pretty didn't used to
    always be in
    pink
    and pretty didn't always
    walk past you in the mall
    lick her lips
    then act like she didn't see you
    now days I see pretty all the time
    behind the picture window of
    l.a. beauty salon getting
    her nails done

    thats pretty

    but pretty didn't used to
    always be in
    pink

    pretty used to be
    a bad man!

    pretty was a fighter
    pretty was a lover
    pretty wasn't pink
    pretty was brown
    pretty was seven of twelve rounds
    of punishment to your face
    as fast as a pause in a
    sentence

    long enough to catch your breath

    now thats pretty

    girls weren't always pretty

    they wanted to feel pretty
    on top of them
    and pretty would make them
    feel pretty to the point they'd
    literally see
    pretty
    things

    now thats pretty

    Daddy
    when I grow up
    I wanna be pretty
    says the little boy
    a pair of tube socks on each hand
    he's throwing pretty punches too
    he's not breathing air
    that's pride rising and falling in his
    chest

    now thats pretty

    pretty wasn't always
    pink

    So...I'm wondering who pretty is at this point...which fighter? Ali mayby? Don't know, just using my visuals with this one. Nice drop.
