Keep Our State Straight, insideout

“Keep our state straight”
Is among the things I hate
It is said just to alienate
People not born like you
So now, the Department of Justice sues
Yet, you still can’t take a clue
No different than Jim Crow,
Is a new arbitrary low
Somehow legally deeming transgender a foe.
All I can say is a blatant “no”
To the Republican slime
Who assume transgender people use the restroom,
hearts intent on crime
Now, with my catchy rhyme
I emphasize that this not “love one’s neighbor”
in it’s prime.
Instead of bathroom-banishing,
Or gender examining,
Let’s protect our sisters,
Not just our cis-ters
And regard our trans brothers
Not as others.
