What's in a Name .

Mom.. I think I might be homosexual..
CALM~DOWN !.. I just said THINK !..
It's not I fear
My multi~studded ear ,
Or that I look stunning dressed in pink .
I wont complain ,
As I sip champagne
Of my blemish~free youthful looks ,
Or how I enjoy the finer things in life ;
Like fine art , or poetry books .
 NO !.. I never joined the Girl~Guides .
 You're being silly...patronizingly .
I dont like damp
But I do love camp....
'Specially in Summer , by the sea .
I like being with Brad and Christopher ;
Young Lloyd is such a dear
And Mourice is such  a sweet lad ;
Yes.. I'll always keep them near .
But , deep inside my inner soul
When push will come to shove .
For my own part ,
Who has my heart ,
Yes !.. It's Annie I really love .
But one thing that still bothers me ,
And will , until my dying day ....
Is , when on that morn....
Yes!.. When I was born..
WHY ! !.. Did you name me  GAY ??...

    hahaha. I knew a guy once with the name GAYE. I think in the states it is spelled with an E on then end. LIke that makes it any less funny. Did you ever hear JOhnny Cash's A Boy Named Sue. If not, try to listen to it. Great song. THis was fun! Luv, Andrea ps Indictment of the Blight is not the villanelle I entered in the villanelle contest, but I hope I did not make a mistake entering the wrong one!

    This is a very funny little write here. "Off the castle library", saith the Queen! (All I can think of is A Boy Named Sue by Johnny Cash!)

    I laugh again, and again! You are just a funfilled little ray of Poetry Soup sunshine! I also wanted to let you know that my mothers real middle name is Gaye. Sad, sad, sad, but oh, so very true. She is going to get a good laugh outa this. Love Christie
