Passion that could Kill

Passion that could Kill


I took my love to the general store.

I put her on the shelves.


When someone wanted to buy her

I killed him.


Heterosexual love is a powerful force.

Gay love is dust behind the cans of beans.



Gays have to be kidding.


They are misplaced overpriced labels

On boxes of dried rice.


If you take gay marriage seriously you mock

Centuries of marriage


And passion that could kill.


Acceptance of perversion is not kind.

It is blind.


It is the arrogance of tripping over your own

Intellectual feet.
