Hermaphrodite

Hermaphrodite, the odyssey.
Cyclops of democracy.
The big bad wolf has found his ecstasy.
Unconsciousness, the doleful blasphemy.
Eyes of justice blinded by a male hierarchy.

Graph the numbers. Chart results.
Absorb the merely mealy-mouthed.
Chewing gum - the human kind of cud.
Uniquely spiced, the wine
is overflowing from the vine.

Dyed and pleated, pressed and worn
Scorn the age of wrinkles, safe and warm.
Youthful fantasies become forlorn.
Metal wings instead of feathers.
Destructively, they change the weather.

Genetically induced euphoria.
The wheels of time keep rolling on and on.
Eras birth, then fade away.
An age of garbage born to stray.
Lost heritage, as idle gossip flares.

They lived and died and never dared
to live the meant to be.
Hermaphrodite, the myth, the odyssey...
