Trump’s Trans Military Ban is Bullshit

Absolutely stellar writing.

On Wednesday afternoon, President Trump announced the reinstatement of a ban, via Twitter, preventing transgender people from serving in any and all branches of the military “in any capacity.” The ban would not only prohibit transgender people from joining military but would force military personnel already serving to give up their positions.

One, two

he’s coming for you

three, four

hide behind the door

five, six

let him have his pick

seven, eight

I want to scream, I want to cry

but I want to be safe

One, two

He came for you

Three, four

He looked behind the door

Five, six

he chose to pick

Seven, eight

the danger is great.

There is no escape

when he comes for you.

Hide where you will.

Tremble with fear.

The darkness is coming

for he feels it is time,

time to reap.
