Repeal The Way You Feel

A Poem by TTBoy

Come one, Come All

And welcome to Hell

Let’s have a ball

with the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”

Now there’s no reason, day after day

to keep it a secret that your partner is gay

You knew it from the start

so did many others

that deep in your heart

those soldiers were closer than brothers

What’s the big deal

it’s kill or be killed

A shot in the head is real

no matter if you’re skilled

Protection not neglection

a different set of eyes can act as deflection

When it’s time to relax

down they’ll go on their backs

And just like you

almost on que

But to wait

and be called an ingrate

out of fear and loathing to hate

Say, “Hello” at the golden gate

because you woke up too late

You took on a mission

inspite of your condition

remember that oath you took?

So when you’re down below

sheltered from the other side’s feelings you know

Who in their right mind would give you a second look?
