I'm sure you've heard

it all before

The queers, the faggots

They treat us like maggots

Look down on us

Like gay is synonymous

With the lesser

We love each other

all the same

SO it bothers me when

Men talk about gay men

And women talk about lesbians


Because I am one

And there's nothing wrong with me

I love who I love



Why get

Worked up about

Someone who is ignorant

Someone who is close minded

Over the top incognizant

It's not acceptance I'm asking

Although that would be nice

It's equality I want, fairness I want

As race did, not too long ago,

I hope one day

All of the heterosexual

All of the homosexual

Boys and girls

Men and women

Will stand hand in hand

Side by side

As equals
