“You who never needed a man” by Malik Crumpler

Grandmas and all your friends
relight your cigarette

Grandmas and all that
refill your glass

Grandmas with no children
turn off the television (for a sec’)

Grandmas with no children
we’ll be your grandkids

Grandmas with no children
you still so grand

Grandmas with no grandchildren
you who never needed a man

sing to us

so we may rise beyond our mistakes
and though legless stand

Or… What else can we do?
Grandmas, we await your command
