Hijab Scene #7 Remember when ladies always wore a hat to go out?

No, I’m not bald under the scarf

No, I’m not from that country

Where women can’t drive cars

No, I would not like to defect

I’m already American

But thank you for offering

What else do you need to know

Relevant to my buying insurance,

Opening a bank account,

Reserving a seat on a flight?

Yes, I speak English

Yes, I carry explosives

They’re called words

And if you don’t get up

Off your assumptions,

They’re going to blow you away
