The Boy of Yesterday


The boy of yesterday is no more
Society didn't want him
People had him torn
'Be yourself' they told him
But they then responded
'Kill yourself'
The boy became confused
He wished to be himself
But he did not want to die alone
So he grew his hair out
And put on a dress
And he became she
Just like society wanted

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
