Watching the polarities
Rise and fall
Male and female
Being brought to the boil
As we push the boundary
Of what we think we know
But they’re just categories
And we have to let them go
As gender becomes
A fluid concept
And the powers that be
Are sure to jump on it
And tell us
What we should understand
Now that non binary
Is in demand
And you say conservative
Or a liberal foe
It’s all in the ball you throw
With your good arm
No need to sound the alarm
On the adjacent feminist
They don’t get how some things exist
Except to say a right
Is where the opposites ignite
And I’m just sitting here
In the crosshair
I couldn’t fight
The reason that was there
