TERVen On Their Minds

Sung by Judy Handmaiden

My mind is clearer now.
At last all too well
I can see where we all soon will be.
If you strip away
The myth from the men,
You will see where we all soon will be.
They’ve started to believe
All that postmodern woo.
They really do believe
their genders could be true.
And all the rights you’ve won
Will soon be swept away.
Reality now matters less
Than the things they say.

Listen Woman I don’t like what I see.
All I ask is that you listen to me.
And remember, I’ve been the Left’s handmaiden all along.
You have set them all on fire
By saying sex is not attire.
And they hurt you when you show they’re wrong.

I remember when this whole thing began.
No talk of “cis” then, just woman and man.
And believe me, my admiration for you hasn’t died.
But every word you say today
Gets twisted ’round some other way.
And they hurt you when you show they’ve lied.

Internet, your female crones
should have stayed the great unknowns
Like her mother keeping house, serving her spouse.
Not complaining when oppressed
would have suited Woman best.
She’d have caused nobody harm; no one alarm.

Listen, Woman, do you care for your sex?
Don’t you see that their boot’s on our necks?
We are occupied; have you forgotten how put down we are?
I am frightened for the TERVes
For they have hit too many nerves.
And they’ll crush us if we go too far.
If we go too far

Listen, Woman, to the warning I give.
Please remember that I want us to live,
But it’s sad to see our chances weakening with every hour.
All your followers are blind
Too much TERVen on their minds.
It was beautiful, but now it’s sour.
Yes it’s all gone sour.

Listen, Woman, to the warning I give.
Please remember that I want us to live.
So c’mon, c’mon
She won’t listen to me
c’mon, listen to me
She won’t listen to me

One thought on “TERVen On Their Minds”

  1. Oooh, I’ve got one! (Speaking of the 70s…)

    I Am Woman: 2019 Version

    (To the tune of “I Am Woman” by Helen Reddy)

    I am Woman, suck my dick
    For it cuts me to the quick
    When you bigots keep on saying It’s Not So;
    ‘Cause I’ve heard it all before;
    Conventionality’s a bore
    that is meant for all of us to overthrow!

    I’m Divine

    I am Fabulous

    I am Woman

    Oh, my feelings supersede
    logic, science, sense and creed
    It’s de rigeur to affirm me as a “she”;
    If you won’t wax my lady balls
    My lawyer will give you a call
    For offense to my pretense-biology

    I am Fragile

    I am Delicate

    I am Woman

    If you dare challenge my game
    I will call you nasty names
    and label you a phobic right-wing hack
    I will ruin your career;
    Your reputation I will smear
    with distortions and hyperbolic attacks

    I’m Vindictive

    I’m a Total Bitch

    I am Woman!

    I’ll shout it high and low
    That the Emperor wears clothes
    and in fact she wears a stunning Versace dress
    And do bear this in mind:
    The proper way she is defined
    You’re all required to call her The Empress

    You must yield!

    You must genuflect!

    I am Woman!
