the N word

they say i don't fit their ideal
i'm not the kind that they're used to

they say i'm outside of their mold
and don't behave as I've been told

they say there's no place here for me
to jus' go back, to being out of the blue

they say my sexuality sets me apart
never like them, to be able and smart

they say i should go to where i began
'cause here, i'm maybe three fifths of a man

they say a gender such as me
can only be subservient to their command

they say their faith has led them thus
to proclaim my existence sub-humanity

I say to them, "Will there ever be
a time when you will treat me equally?"

"No" is the reply
