for A Tribe Called LGBTQ


As the wind cried fair game
they grinned from ear to ear

without a neat or fear
of things far & near

The earth loved them the same
but they knew not of this fact

only of their longtime pact
to honor the love contract

Then at last the fire came
& brought some pride inside their tears

as they took back the years
well deserving of three cheers
