ONE ‘SPLAIN MORE

ONE ‘SPLAIN MORE

a filk/parody by Shawna Jacques of “One Day More” from Les Miserables

FURIOUS FEMME:
One ‘splain more
Another ‘splain, another “well, actually”
This never-ending road to patr’archy
These men think they deserve my time
Will surely come explain my crimes
One ‘splain more…

EXHAUSTED ENBY and ANGRY ACE:
I did not know until today
That I could live without words you farted.

FURIOUS FEMME
One ‘splain more

EXHAUSTED ENBY and ANGRY ACE:
Tomorrow I’ll throw your words away
And yet with this, my rage has started

MEDIOCRE MANSPLAINER 1:
One more ‘splain all on my own

EXHAUSTED ENBY and ANGRY ACE:
Our pronouns are they and them!

MEDIOCRE MANSPLAINER 1:
One more splain with her not hearing

EXHAUSTED ENBY and ANGRY ACE:
Our last warning goes to you

MEDIOCRE MANSPLAINER 1:
I want a wife, but I’m friend-zoned

EXHAUSTED ENBY and ANGRY ACE:
And I swear my anger’s true

MEDICORE MANSPLAINER 1::
And she’ll never see me there

MEDIOCRE MANSPLAINER 2:
One more ‘splain “just to inform”

EXHAUSTED ENBY :
Will he follow if we go?

MEDIOCRE MANSPLAINER 2:
I’ll speak with my right to freedom

ANGRY ACE:
Shall we join our siblings there?

MEDIOCRE MANSPLAINER 2:
Without thanks, resentment forms

EXHAUSTED ENBY:
We won’t be safe unless we dare.

MEDIOCRE MANSPLAINER 1 & 2:
Don’t you know your place with me?

ALL:
The time is now, the day is here

FURIOUS FEMME:
One ‘splain more

DANGEROUS DEVILS ADVOCATE:
One ‘splain more to resolution,
We’ll show you and we will judge!
We’ll be ready for SJWs
We will push them in the mud!

FURIOUS FEMME:
One ‘splain more!

TEDIOUS TROLLS 1 AND 2
Watch ’em run amuck,
Laugh at ’em as they fall,
Never give a fuck
Make it a free for all,
Here a little “RIP”
There a little “wat”
Most of them are snowflakes
So they won’t hold up!

ASTUTE ALLIES (2 Groups)
1: One ‘splain to a new beginning
2: Raise the flag of banning high!
1: Every ban will make us sing
2: Every ban will make us sing
1: There’s a new world for the winning
2: There’s a new world to be won

ALL:
Do you hear the people sing?

EXHAUSTED ENBY:
My place is here, I fight with you!

FURIOUS FEMME:
One ‘splain more!

MEDIOCRE MANSPLAINER 2:
One more ‘splain all on my own

EXHAUSTED ENBY and ANGRY ACE:
I did not know until today

DANGEROUS DEVILS ADVOCATE:
We will smear these people’s heroes
We will follow where they go
We will post all of their secrets,
They’ll know all the things we know.

EXHAUSTED ENBY and ANGRY ACE:
That I could live without words you farted.

FURIOUS FEMME:
One ‘splain more!”

EXHAUSTED ENBY and ANGRY ACE:
Tomorrow I’ll throw your words away

I want a wife, but I’m friend-zoned

EXHAUSTED ENBY and ANGRY ACE:
And yet with this, my rage has started

DANGEROUS DEVILS ADVOCATE:
One ‘splain more to resolution,
We’ll show you and we will judge!
We’ll be ready for SJWs

TEDIOUS TROLLS 1 AND 2
Watch ’em run amuck,
Laugh at ’em as they fall,
Never give a fuck
Make it a free for all!

Tomorrow isn’t far away,
Tomorrow is the judgement day

ALL
Tomorrow we’ll discover
What our social justice has in store!

One more ‘splain…
ONE ‘SPLAIN MORE!

Poem Seed: Inspired by the Jane Eyre musical

From the musical: ‎”My heart moves through his unquiet sea…”

My poem seed: Hearts have no limbs with which to swim, but they are awfully good at drowning.
