Hayley Green Final Draft – Commission

8 Feb

Run time: 2 minutes 30 but likely to be 3 minutes with performance.

FYI – I’ve been trying to edit this post to show my stanzas but it keeps reformatting so now there is a * between them

Sins of Nature

On average more rams are gay than humans

but alternative sexual orientation

is a sin against nature

*

Nature increases understanding

but countries enforce laws;

men are sheep and women are whores

*

And we should be proud;

we’re more advanced than species before us,

so why aren’t apes starting wars?

*

If same sex penguins raise chicks in zoos

then why must equivalent kisses

leave our lips blue and bruised?

*

Birds sing love songs through trees

but we shout dyke across nightclubs,

beating queens until they bleed.

*

We stand and watch

as humans chuck chewing gum

in hair for being too pink.

*

Flamingos don’t fling shit

in feathers for being too gay –

they don’t commit colours to anatomy.

*

Lesbians no longer wear pink

‘cause the first girl they smiled at

stole their vagina with their kiss;

*

Paraded it around the school yard –

fresh meat and a spicy dip

for the boys to test their chips before

*

raping their way through populations

polluted by homosexuals of the state

and without hesitation

*

governments are quick

to bury truths in the sand –

the way flamingos bury their heads.

*

But the revolution is upon us

and animals are out of the closet!

No more

*

No more correction therapists

flushing heads down toilets

spouting footnotes about religion

*

or statements about

penetrating straight into our heads –

it’s our choice who we let between our legs.

*

We’re not a sin, we’re not a waste

and this is not the time to try and taste

the rainbow through our face.

*

No more tripping over partner

when we actually mean girlfriend,

cause parent’s told us it’s just a trend

*

and that’s the reason

boys try to prick thistles with

‘real man’ documentation

*

Well of course we’re only looking for a threesome

We’re just test tube vaginas

for ‘experimental’ women

*

I’ve got news

We can be normal again

all it takes is consideration

*

Realisation that lesbian

Means homosexual woman

And we’re still human

*

So let us lock lips

because the sheep aren’t bleating

pecca conta naturam.

*

We’re the smartest species

so stop all this ignorance

take evolution out of reverse.

*

Or put us back in the jungle –

at least there

no one called us perverse.

And I thought I’d include some possible images that I’ve been playing around with…

gay penguins Bird nighclub  gay giraffes tase the rainbow  gay sheep homophobia
