Ladies please

Duke University
Lacrosse players
falsely accused of
raping a stripper
during a house party
March 2006; they were
acquitted in 2007

Ladies please
Don’t falsely accuse
Just so you get
Your name in the news

You led him on
It used to be said
You chose to stay
You could have fled

A college jock
A basketball star
Their reputation
You'll surely mar

The pendulum swung
They’re sympathetic
But look at you
You’re so pathetic

Millions were spent
On legal fees
You wanted that money
For shopping sprees

A shroud of suspicion
There’ll always be doubt
Were they acquitted
Because they had clout

Men I must warn you
Or you'll be screwed
Some of these ladies
Are really quite shrewd
