Bruce made quite the news
‘Cuz he’s the Jenner gone transgender,
Nothing to do with glamour or glory.
He told the truth on TV.

He’s already in his mid-sixties,
Served time under his self-imposed penalties.

But his message is not just about him,
It’s to shine light on a subject so dim
That so many have suffered much abuse–
Perhaps Bruce’s message will help spread the news:

That you can be yourself without fear or shame,
For underneath we are all the same.
