I’d like to take a moment of your time if I may
to tell of the stupidity of man
For those who would demand that equal rules apply
you’re welcome to add wo when you can
It seems to me I’m stupid and I really should take care
for political correctness should enthuse
but to me a man’s a man and a woman surely can
do anything and anyone she choose
I’ve long espoused the thought that a woman really ought
be in charge of everything that is in sight
It seems to me it could, and if left to me it would
be enshrined in law and be a natural right
The world will surely wake and each of us partake
in a life that has equality at heart
and those bastions of hate that simply can’t relate
should be burned and then extinguished with a fart
You may think this extreme but modern life is mean
and the haves have had it much too much I think
It’s time equality reached down to you and me
It’s time the have nots saved us from the brink!
