Poem: EXPLOITED!

EXPLOITED!

YOU!
how dare you benefit unfairly from our existence as rare

YOU!
exploited us fully,

and you took advantage of all of us

YOU!
the sideshow ringmaster

YOU!
the grand rounds physician

YOU!
are the one calling yourself our savior
as you make us your roadshow

YOU!
even called me your my friend
to get into our world

EXPLOITED!

Nothing about us without us, I cried
Nothing about me without me,

ugh!


NOT a true ally!
so stop!
YOU!

YOU! trick another for your own
selfish gain

To dump us or praise that we are dead
or our wishing for death

YOU!

don’t care!

YOU!

too privileged to care about dirt


YOU!
got away with it, again

YOU!
the sideshow ringmaster

YOU!
the grand rounds physician

YOU!
the one calling yourself our savior

NO! NO! NO! NO!
NO MORE, YOU!

EXPLOITED!

  1. I felt the intense emotion in this.
    So much so that at first I thought that perhaps I had done some terrible thing and was being called out!
    Emotional and forceful like undeniable thunder.

      1. I follow your Facebook page and have for years. I identify as intersex bc I have PCOS, but don’t ususlly share this info bc stigma.
        I just saw that you have a LOT of articles about this, and just wanna say thank you. I feel seen.
