Why is it that folks cheer on
Teams playing sports
They don’t play, in
States they don’t live in
and yet they’re totally
Ready and willing to vote to keep
Trans youth from living,
Ban them from playing with the other kids
Lest they get the idea to play for
Another team, in another state, you know–
Change how god made them.
I wonder how god feels about
Do you think they’re all living
According to his plan?
I know the genders aren’t teams but–
If that’s the case, then
Why all the tension around the changing?
If there are no privileges’ being lost or gained
Then there should be no harm nor foul in this game
Yet all I hear is evidence to the contrary.
Ahhh, who am I, just some weird artist person
I never competed in sports, or binary
I just try to live amongst all you jostling jocks
Going off on your “locker room talk”
