Black and White

Submitted by Writer on Thu, 02/15/2018 - 13:58

Donald J. Trump,

 

You’re aiming for a black and white world.

Boys will stay boys, girls will stay girls.

You’re aiming for straight love.

A campaign to end us.

You’re aiming for a black and white world.

 

You sit in your tower,

Surrounded by power,

And you dictate our lives.

You tweet us the bad news,

“Military won’t have you.”

Doesn’t mean we won’t fight.

 

You feel free to tell us whatever you want,

When you are hidden behind a font.

With 280 characters,

you can certainly do a lot of hurt.

 

So you have won,

But you didn’t win our hearts.

You have won because of all the people that can get up and start,

Their day,

And feel okay.

They don’t have to worry about what all the people in their life will say.

They don’t feel dysphoria.

They feel a straight kind of love,

And they are the reason you have won.

 

You pull our protection.

Then you make a correction,

To the bathroom we choose.

You won’t guarantee fair pay.

Endanger us in the workplace.

Backwards in rights we’ve moved.

 

You feel free to hire whoever you want.

When their bad history with us is long.

With America at your feet,

you can easily spread your bigotry.

 

It’s insane how you can take away everything from us.

It’s a shame that you made promises and no one called your bluff.

Who’s to blame when in America we have no faith or trust?

Cause no one stopped you when naming June our month was no longer a must.

 

So you have won,

But you didn’t win our hearts.

You have won because of all the people that can get up and start,

Their day,

And feel okay.

They don’t have to worry about what all the people in their life will say.

They don’t feel dysphoria.

They feel a straight kind of love,

And they are the reason you have won.

 

You’re aiming for a black and white world.

Boys will stay boys, girls will stay girls.

You’re aiming for straight love.

A campaign to end us.

You’re aiming for a black and white world.

You’re aiming for a black and white world.
