Young girls with weak minds, but they butt strong
I believe that Common is speaking about his own frailty here. The girls cursing on the bus are so ignorant that he is left clutching his head, but he still has to note that they have great bodies. He doesn’t want to notice that, but he notices anyway. He immediately tries to pray, both for the city and for himself as part of it, but he gets no answer.
