I was born wrong
with the wrong chromosome
There's too many
of use here already
Raised carelessly
to give less care
Cultivated for
aggression culture

I'm the source for
all things oppressing
I'm the mindset for
all things unequal
I'm a tool and a
weapon of war
Failure that is
counted on
Vehicle for
physical dominance
I run on
power and sex

I'm an artifact left in the past
An outdone relic that shall not last
What I have to give is no longer needed
To my fate I'm simply conceded
My future does not exist
I'm soon to be extinct
No longer have I, but one choice
Die with a whimper or die in flames

Time has faded
obsession of conquest
My skills and genes
are all useless
I can't kill
can't hunt, can't breed
Can't find my
reason for being
My role now
I belong
in an obituary

I'm an artifact left in the past
