I remember a girl from the slums who's life was really humdrum, to peer pressure she would succumb so her friends started calling her DUMB.

They said, she would always live in the slums, the men she date would be scum, only a house full of babies would come and all her kids would grow up to be bums.

Saying such awful things to keep her under their thumbs, only she didn't march to the beat of their drums, for she knew she had control of her outcome.

Well, years passed and she did overcome,and no longer under their thumbs nor do she live in the slums because she has a very hefty income.

Now their eating her crumbs and want to call her chum... Now Who's Dumb.
