And They Spoke

And They Spoke short poem

Photo by torbakhopper

It twitched on the day
when clouds were born
the day when the fool notion
of gender, took a flight
the poll was asked, changing lives to monstrosity …

Are you a man, or a woman?
a gay, a bisexual or a transgender?
what are you? Undignified progeny of a mother
and a person without an appropriate gender .

what are you? how could your mother
give birth to a child
who is a gay or a lesbian?
which league should we throw you in?

Did you ever think which
washroom you are going to use
in your school? Boys or girls?
Or should a school build a special washroom for you?

The buses that you board
everyday , where do you intend
to sit ? what do you expect now?
A freshly build sit for very special
corrupt-minded people like you?
Electric shocks and dungeons are the best for you .

And then they spoke, we are
the children of god. We know
what we are and what the world is.
we know how to fight
we don’t give less than-stellar performances.
now we would show
and you will see.
