Old, male, pale and stale

I’m old, I’m male,

I’m pale, I’m stale

So please ignore my views.

We’ve had our chips

Been written off

Removed from public gaze.

‘That’s your lot

Enough of you

Be gone

Get out of here.’

‘Surplus to requirements

Time to leave the stage.

Crawl away and die some place

That’s all we ask of you.’

‘We want to hear new voices

Different points of view

We’re sick and tired of hearing

From the likes of you.’

‘You didn’t get a leg up

Go to private school

But look like the advantaged

So that’s enough of you.’

‘You got to have an angle

A different point of view

No one wants to hear now

From the likes of you.’
