Cathy Newman (Rondeau Redouble)


I am the very model of a modern, right on feminist,
The one thing I cannot abide is masculine intelligence,
No, don’t make well thought arguments, you must shut up, you must desist
It’s sexist when you make me seem some nincompoop irrelevance.
If you like men, then I conclude you're full of pure malevolence,
All men are vile and stupid and you’re just a male chauvinist.
How dare you try and make your case with intellectual elegance?
I am the very model of a modern right on feminist.
I will not listen, I’ll resist
Ideas backed up by evidence,
Let it be known that I think you a nasty great misogynist,
The one thing I cannot abide is masculine intelligence
And don’t point out the dreadful fact of suicide, its prevalence,
Among the population male and then go on and on, insist
That young men need our help, not our despisal and our negligence.
No, don’t make well thought arguments, you must shut up, you must desist,
I don’t care about your years of work as clinical psychologist,
It’s just a cover up, a poor disguise, a silly nuisance
When I know that what you really are is some far right apologist!
It’s sexist when you make me seem some nincompoop irrelevance,
And answer patiently, eyes full of humour and benevolence,
Implying, I’m not any threat, and not a real antagonist,
Just one who toe’s the leftist line without even the semblance
Of one who’s questioned anything, for I am a post modernist -
The very model of!
