Bigots, bigots everywhere

I composed this poem in May, in reaction to a heated debate I had with a friend. He called me a bigot and we no longer talk.

Bigots, bigots everywhere,
Who you are, we do not care.
All we know is you’re unfair.
Moral categories we forswear.

Bigots, bigots all around me,
What nerve you have to disagree.
“Truth” is relative, don't you see.
Your views are square with tyranny.

Bigots, bigots in the wrong,
Far in the past do you belong.
Human progress you can’t prolong.
To the future we rush headlong.
