I AM A WOMAN, I AM A MAN

I am a woman, I am a man
I was alive when the Earth began
I saw the rivers, I saw the stars
I saw the garden: it is on Mars

I am a woman, I am a man
I was alive when the Earth began
I saw the mountains, I saw the seas
I felt the touch of a wanton breeze

I am a woman, I am a man
I try to gather whate'er I can
The last day's coming when things must end
So, know your foe, and know your friend

I am a woman, I am a man
And Armageddon is in this plan
Hermaphrodite, I shall always be
Forever two, so they decree

I am a woman, I am a man
I reproduce by the means I can
Forever wandering to places known
With God, my Mother, my chaperone

Inspired in part by Brinsley Le Poer Trench's 'The Sky People'
