I'm talking about my warrior name, the name under which I'm going to skate my way through the wonderful world of roller derby.
I can't pretend I made it up. It's the name of Ani DiFranco's record label, under which she has been releasing her warrior songs for years.
It's a long long road
It's a big big world
We are wise wise women
We are giggling girls
We both carry a smile
Show when we're pleased
We both carry a switchblade
In our sleeves.
Tell you one thing
I'm gonna make noise when I go down
For ten square blocks they're gonna know I died
All the goddesses will come up to the ripped screen door
And say, what do you want dear?
I want inside...
("if he tries anything")
So. Pleased to meet you. I'm Righteous Babe. Now get outta my way.
