Cis Men Aren’t Funny

Make us the butt of the joke

Point and laugh at human reactions

We joke about you

You kill us in the streets

Hundreds buried a year

Point and laugh at the blood on your hands

Joke about going to a women's prison

Raping them

Beating them 

Point and laugh at the reality you create

Call us snowflakes as we ask for respect

Kick us down as we plead


Point and laugh at flowers picked too soon

Never getting to flourish

Trans lives are not a joke

And cis men aren't funny
