I know a little chap who is frightened of gay men
and one must assume that he judges them in haste,
you see he, being rather dim,
thinks that soon they may chase him
but perhaps he should credit them with taste.
Some say that he’s a throwback to the Fifties
when men were men and women glad of that,
for surely then there was no danger
that by simply talking to a stranger
one might end up being invited to his flat.
But in today’s world we can sense his isolation
even though we recognise that he’s sincere,
it can’t be easy when one finds
one must compete with open minds
little wonder then the fellow’s feeling queer!
