Through ignorance and machismo
They delete themselves from posterity
The creed of embracing all that they expound
Forgotten when selecting the gods 
That inhabit their one sided hierarchy

They court and woo controversy
Discriminating on a grand scale
The other half of humanity
The X chromosome to these
Male gods 
Has only a reproductive use
And no spiritual worth
A selfish message they send 
To future generations
Today will be tomorrows past 
The stain of no sisterly love 
Does imperil  
The hard fought for longevity of the church
Blocking female advancement
Is a wanton disregard for the maker
Who created all in his image
And who blesses us 
From on high

Bickering and infighting 
Is no way to run a faith 
A blight on a way of life 
That raises a soul up high
Flambolic Postulations 
Coupled with rapscallion procrastinations
Have blighted the authority of the church
A reverse stigmata that may not be easily healed
The soul after all has no gender 

Side-lined for their femininity
Traduced for being as god created 
Women are second class in a world
Where acceptance of the divine 
Should outweigh gender dog fighting

A shaky foundation is today’s Christian ethos 
The lack of understanding and 
The ability to forgive 
Has reduced respect for a beacon of society 
A grievous long lasting
And irrevocable manoeuvre
Is this exclusivity ruling

The male domination of the soul
Is but a wilful audacious folly 
Humanity will not exist 
Without the X and the Y chromosomes 
They must after all be brought together
To create harmony

To look at the future of the church
Is to gaze into a cloudy ball
The smoke of destruction evident to all about
Except the Don Quixotes who stubbornly fight the inevitable
Bolstered by their own ill will

The unity of the church
Is paramount for its survival
The acceptance of those who believe 
Irrespective of their genes will extend 
The work on earth of Christ above 

God created humanity
Along a double stranded line 
A church cannot have spiritual authority
By being discriminatory 
Let us worship and serve god as one
