(Feelings of) Gender Dysphoria

She uses a mirror
And a razor to
Try and shave her
Face so very smooth
In the hope this’ll
Get rid of the
Product of the testosterone
But a razor can’t
Get rid of the
Hair it comes back
Every day there’s more
This gives her dysphoria

She uses a mirror
And a patch to
Try and get the
Secondary sex features of
A cisgender woman but
The product of her
First puberty it’ll always
Be there serving as
A bad reminder of
What testosterone has done
To her body’s structure
This gives her dysphoria

She tries to go
Out into the wider
World it can be
A scary place especially
When it judges you
Based on rigid standards
Of binary gender expression
Which it firmly polices
This gives her dysphoria
Feelings of gender dysphoria
Bad crippling feelings of
Feelings of gender dysphoria

Capitalism

Don’t wanna by
This system it
Props some up
Leaves the rest
To go and
Flounder

Really vary wonderful
If we didn’t
Have to live
In this system
Capitalism

Yes it’s this
Giving everything a
Totally arbitrary value
That can be
Oh so vary
Devaluing

Of our talents
And what they
Could be contributing
In this society

Places more value
On monetary currency
Then our talents
And their vary
Potential

We all have
Potentials that are
Held captive to
The need for
Monetary gain herein
Capitalism

Don’t wanna by
This system it
Props some up
Leaves the rest
To go and
Flounder

We could be
Really vary wonderful
If we didn’t
Have to live
