To Prove They Are One Of The Boys - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

They accuse him for doing something,
They've been doing since time began.
Sneaking around!
And being unfaithful,
Is what homophobics do.
To prove they are one of the boys!
Just to be set up to be destroyed...
By those 'boys' enjoying discreet and cloaked,
Their ancestors wrote to be noted as something insisted.
With a self righteousness pretensed....
And an acknowledgement of this enlisted.
