New Preference

Think about it, something they overlooked?
It works both ways, It's bound to Happen


You say, "just treat you equally" but you want separate laws
like "locker/bathroom privileges", to which there are some flaws
The ninety plus percentage, still say majority rules
Supreme Court alters common sense, which means they are the fools

Maybe not far down the road, I heard that some have feared
explaining to your children, they're genetically engineered
Tell them anything you want, the truth might be a plus
for somewhere deep inside of them, they may be one of us

You take your children shopping you are at some crowded store
one walks in the bathroom, while you stand out side the door
No sooner has she gone inside a man walks quickly in
you hear your daughter screaming and you can not let him win

No matter what he calls himself, your head begins to swirl
you can't excuse him being there, he's not another girl
Thank god for CCWs, you are lucky you're not late
this mal-content (oops, poor lost soul), has maybe met his fate.....
