On Neurodiversity: A poem

You say you oppose
As if- somehow-
The billions of unique personalities
On this planet
Are housed in our ankles and elbows
And not in
Our minds
Our brains flash at different intervals
Pulsing with different electricity
Who are you to say your wiring
Is superior to mine
Or to my son's?
Do only brains that look like yours
Enjoy a quality of life?
How do you begin to measure
Where the animal ends and the person begins?
You say I support
I ask you
As opposed to what?
