Celebrating Kate

(for kate Grant)

Kate Grant, County Tyrone
On the catwalk;
Belfast Fashion Week
You go girl;
Down's Syndrome
So what
Looking great.

Kate Grant up in lights
Live on line;
Thousands raise fists
Strut your stuff;
Down's Syndrome
Under your heels
Looking fab.

Kate Grant make us smile
Razzle dazzle,
Knock us out,
Super cool;
Down's Syndrome
Shoved aside
Looking hot.
