  (A True Tale From The Castro. Eat your heart out, Armistead!)

  ©1998 by Ezekiel J. Krahlin

  A guy named "Ray" (crew-cut-blonde,
     mustachio, and EyesSoBlue),
  Kinda good lookin', he'll appeal to you:
  Behind your back he'll steal from you!
  The Donut Shop (18th & Castro Street):
  Place of choice where he will voice
  Pro-gay sentiments Oh-So-Sweet!

  "I'm straight, I'm straight!" he'll
     make it clear
  In no doubtful words that he's NotQueer!
  Then he will croon that ol' SingSong:

  "Although I'm straight I'll vindicate
  Any gay who's been done wrong
  By homophobic, violent hate.
  I got lotsa gay friends I defend."
  I doubt it Ray, I really do,
  Because I fine'ly cornered you.
  When handed my poem So-OhProGay,
  You crumpled and tossed it away:

  "Zeke, I told you I'm not gay, please
     don't hand me this stuff.
  The Castro's just my hangout.  Enough
     is enough!"
  How arrogant of this driveling fool

  To spill his homophobic drool all over
     the DonutShop stools,
  In the heart of The Castro (Gay Mecca)!
  He is proud (yea, brags!) to claim
  No compassion for love sex-same!

  Buster, your cards are on the table!
  You are "Cain," and we are Able
  To run you straights right outta here.
  (Read this and weep, homophobe creep;
  You're the one who's really queer!)
