Charles Darwin's Cousin*

invented the word, if not the idea of,
Eugenics -
which led, on the one hand,
to the Nazi extermination camps
and the Steel Wall of Palestine,
and, on the other, to the European Welfare State.
Obsessed with categorisation, he invented
the confining terms
homosexuality and homosexual,
which led, on the one hand,
to many a blackmail, many a sad suicide,
the Nazi extermination camps
and the horrible crimes of Hamas (etc.),
while on the other, to the grotesquely
confined stereotypes who haunt gay bars
and flaunt Gay Pride.

*Francis Galton
