Treasure Island

David McLansky

(5/24/1944 / New York City)

Saying No


Ah, my dear, you have such a mind
You look so good, too, from behind;
But try as I may, try as I might
I cannot love a transvestite.
Fault me not for prejudoce;
You're smashing in that red slit dress;
But though your chams may rival Venus,
I can't love a girl who has a penis.
