“Oh, but I respect you.”
While at the same time, you turn us blue
keep us homebound,
while you’re free to roam around.
We’re treated more like properties
only seen at face-value
though we have thoughts, feelings, and opinions too
“Oh, but I do respect you.”
Then why aren’t you listening?
Why do you keep second-guessing
whatever we say?
You don’t really care anyway
questioning our ‘rationality’
yet you demand that we do as you please
We’re sick to death of your superiority.
“Oh, but I really respect you.”
To question or debate with you means another exhausting fight.
The truth is,
this is just how you value us.
So stop saying crap about ‘respect’,
when what you keep doing to us is the exact opposite.
