In honor of I Love Roller Derby Day, a poem by our very own Liz Soranno!
An Ode to Roller Girls
Hardcore disco dolly
"nobody puts Baby in a corner"
punk rock athlete.
Life of the party
will take you out with the flick of her hip
warrior on wheels.
Wears her heart on her tattooed sleeve
Trash talkin', fishnet wearin'
single, girlfriend, (derby) wife.
professional, manager, coordinator, director.
Glittered up, Derby Skinzed
Ready to do battle
sister, student, pinup.
Blink and you'll miss her
Bad ass daughter.
Ass-kickin', tells it like it is
Tough as they come
can't judge a book by its cover girl.
Alter-egoed, super hero
foul-mouthed (Earth) mother rebel.
To all the derby girls everywhere -- Happy I Love Roller Derby Day.
