Today the world is open and gay...
gay of today
not yesterday

so feel free to say
what you may
only don't strip folk’s nude
you will be damaging
their prude
they may feel
you are rude

all other compositions
write substantially

We have only
one life to live
live it
why die
in grief of abandoning
not in your knowledge
but sheer others salvation
will and imagination

If you read me
you will find
the knife of butter
with which I slice

My brain is not curry -spice
it just does my creation suffice

(they some
like I am lice)

I refuse to use that word in that way, Good-As-You is what it stands for. I am gay, in the old fashioned meaning of the word, carefree, happy-go-lucky. That is my nature and is not one I would attempt to change. Homo-sexuals should be as proud of that tag as I am to be hetero-sexual. If not, what are they trying to hide, their unnatural sexual proclivities perchance. It is the American way to change the name of something everyone finds offensive to something that does not sound so bad. No one now dies of starvation, it is hunger edema.
Today the world is open and gay... as per pre-flood.
