A Loner's Manifesto - Poem by John Thorkild Ellison

Wherever I go I can always hear
Them saying behind me 'He's a queer! '
Wherever I go I hear them say
'That guy's peculiar, he must be gay! '
But what if I am, who gives a sh*t?
I'm just a bit different and there's an end of it,
I couldn't care less about the common herd,
Whatever they say, I ignore every word,
They like to gang up on a solitary guy,
They'd like me to suffer and I don't know why,
They're narrow and stupid and I don't give a damn,
One thing's for certain, I AM WHAT I AM! !
