If asked whether I am goyim,
Whether I am an enemy to your people.
I would reply that I am of a somewhat older people.
My people (the gay, who are neither Jew nor goyim)
Were caught in your Lord God Jehovah's first pogrom
Out at Sodom.
No one was very indignant about it.
Looking backwards at us is hard on neutrals (ask Mrs. Lot someday)
You may say it was all inhospitality to angels.
You may say we're guilty; well, show us
An angel pacing down Hollywood, wings folded,
And try us.
