Red Face - Poem by David Darbyshire

Red bums
and sweet plums
Blue eye's
and long thighs

Blonde hair
skin so fair
Sweet lips
motherly hips

It's not fare
they all stare
I didn't want to be a gay man
it is just the way I am

    David, I liked the way you composed this - giving no hint in the first two stanza's about the narrator's true feelings. Just wondered if the second to last line could be shortened slightly -

    'I didn't want to be gay
    it is just the way I am'

    Only my humble opinion...! Kind regards, Justine
