Counting Non-Binary Digital Sheep

You cannot call me a liar
When I have yet to hear the truth
I cannot call you a cheater
When neither of us knows the rules

Now the boys are all girls at heart
Adding or removing a part

The game’s become quite the puzzle
Staccato tweets and viral memes
Endless rounds of pass the muzzle
Chasing androids’ electric dreams

Now the girls are all boys at heart
Removing or adding a part

Each subtraction an addition
In the quest for a counterpart
One zero sum computation
Away from that elusive start

Rending each other limb from limb
Boys and girls take it all to heart

The online martyrdom parade
Each day urging another purge
It’s the same-old same-old lurking
Behind new mean meaningless words

Now the boys are all girls at heart
Adding or removing a part
Now the girls are all boys at heart
Removing or adding a part
Rending each other limb from limb
Boys and girls take it all to heart
