Creamy Harvey Milk Wasn't Too Queer

In the toilet, thru a window, up a tree, or in the burrow of one mole

I will love Jan on a swing, under a bridge, or atop a telephone pole

She can be mocking masons, churning butter or manning a garrison

castigating firemen, granting credit or singing like George Harrison

With my sweet baby it is better sooner than later that we share a sin

In gay Frisco, a bloody injury to bath-house neophytes is tear-a-bun

as it seems nigh onto impossible to force flitty bathers to fear a gun

By '75, for supervisor, creamy Harvey Milk wasn't too queer to run

as the untiring work of the evil homosexual coalition is never done

I can't fry in cold temperatures nor freeze in steel ovens locked shut

nor hold beer in a ten-month gestation of one swollen, pregnant gut

Innumerable banking trials require holders to fiscally dare deposit

no differently than Leafy Majors conquered model Farrah Fawcett

Poet's Notes about The Poem

If the character Kwai Chang Caine, played by the crapped-out mummer David Carradine in the American T.V. series 'Kung Fu' (1972-5) , had simply gone by the name Kwai Chang Blaine he could've side stepped many altercations and avoided much heart-ache delivered to him by a myriad of tabacco-chawin, ' blood-thirsty bounty hunters (who dogged him on Thursday nights) eager to collect the bounty of $10,000 alive or $5,000 dead that was offered by the Chinese Legation in San Francisco.

Is it fair? Walmart's staff would go nuts if a concerned shopper built a substantial, yet manageable, fire out of Hanes undies in the men's department.

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
