Gender

I went to a meeting today
It explained about the new thinking way
That sex isn't about biology or even psychology
or whether your straight, lesbian or gay

It's society that has driven this mode
a culture of "do as your told"
yet when left to choose
happiness exudes
and diversity is no longer on hold.

Choose or not choose as you wish
to romance, date or kiss
forget the birds and the bees
its about twigs and colourful leaves
it won't matter what gender your born
if you wish, you can be a UNICORN.
