They Have Betrayed Us

They Have Betrayed Us

these men
feel betrayed by social progress
but ultimately
they have betrayed us
and themselves
they join groups
and watch us,
making gestures about a state
for them,
they are, ‘victim’
of a societal, ‘fate’
social progress
has shook their hand
elevated their status
and bestowed them lands
there they are
talking about, ‘feminists’
the, ‘extreme left’
‘men’s rights’
and what society has become
they seem…
well, so young
these men
they feel betrayed by societal progress
it is an, ‘undiscovered genuine syndrome’
ego gone insane
something about these people
seems so vain
