Antisocial

 I disagree with everyone I meet,

And feel uneasy when I'm lying,

I'm not cut out for nodding through deceit,

I was designed for arguing, defying.

I cannot socialise, therefore,

I don't like other people anymore,

I want to slap them round the chops

With cruel truth, then see them crying.

Non Binary

 


I like, or do not like, but don’t define

Myself or any other by false choice.

Because the premises of others are not mine.

The ten commandments, even those give voice

To false assumptions which presume to know

Men’s hearts and motivations and reduce

Our complex lives to almost naught, and little show

The wondrous thing God made in man. What use

To say one did not break the law, yet live

As if in fear that one’s whole life

Is rightly shaped by the idea that one might. Why give

Such prominence to sin, though it is rife.

I am not now, nor have I ever been

Simply pro or anti this or that, nor in between.
