In today's judgmental society
Either you toe the line or you're wrong,
Your racist, sexist, ageist, defeatist
And man you just don't belong.

In today's judgmental society
Either you toe the line or you're wrong,
Your racist, sexist, ageist, defeatist
And man you just don't belong.

You're sexist if you want equality
We're told women were meant to rule,
And if you think men should have rights
They say you're a bloody fool.

You're racist if you want equality
Because all Anglos are evil they say,
So everybody else should rule
And Anglos should be in the grave.

In today's judgmental society
Either you toe the line or you're wrong,
Now women unfairly rule the place
We're told it's evil to carry on.

To carry on for justice now
Will never again be allowed,
So bend your knee down low
To show you're properly cowed.

If you're against political correctness
They say you're truly evil,
And if you fight for freedom now
Then you're in league with the devil.

The Bitch-Queen-Fuehrer is never wrong
So detractors must be no good,
They're clearly just too stupid
For the truth to be understood.

In today's judgmental society
Either you toe the line or you're bad,
If you dare to demand equality
The Bitch-Queen-Fuehrer calls you mad.

Great observations, I would have opted for another title, though. I would have called it Disruptive Society. I enjoyed reading this poem, because its existence shows there are still people who seek for the sensible middle ground, which provides a bit of optimism in this era of polarization. Well done.
