i like anybody else
i am arranged of many cells
and am ashamed of what my mouth
silently says to no one else

i should have gone back to school
but i am sleeping by the pool
and is it kidney-shaped and cool?
and are my tits symmetrical?

i am staring at a screen
and i am screaming for a team
we laugh it off but truthfully
i am afraid of what it means

the way the chains are all arranged
makes every city look the same
and every war our parents waged
we are still fighting here today

then why the disconnect
then why the disconnect
between the way i want to and the way i live?
