It's A Guy Thing - Poem by Josephine DixonBanks

The maternity hospital is the womb
The state of grace…departed too soon
Long forgotten...can’t resume
Not remembering is a tomb

Assimilate—matriculate
The external mandate
Subjugate—obliterate the inner being
Ritualistically, it’s a guy thing

Held captive by patriarchal tricks
Modern, macho males are in a fix
To remember the embryonic mix
Must make mandatory move immediately to the Matrix

Born a male does entail being, first, female
This may assail the fragile ego
A good foundation is essential to grow
A new birth…a new plateau

Knowing you roots is quintessentially apropos

According to inherent ecology
Female first, by virtue of embryology
This you can never redeem
Female first, it is a guy thing

The first time is always been the deciding
Female first, despite genetically engineered chiding


Being first is the ultimate goal
Pima Materia the female soul
An evolution contribution from the female fold

According to inherent ecology
Female first, by virtue of embryology
This you can never redeem
Female first, it is a guy thing

Embryonic grandeur the definitive critic
The sole self seems somewhat hermaphroditic
The embryonic experience existential and extreme
Female first, it is a guy thing

Homage to the embryonic icon regime
Female first, the absolutely awesome guy thing
