Note: The following is one of several poems I found on a website geared to gay and lesbian youth that I liked very much way back in 1996. As I have started rebuilding the blog, I want to include these poems. I tried unsuccessfully to contact the poets for their permission. If this is your poem, I would love to hear from you.
Homecoming Queen by Frank, age 18 Sophomore at LSU Put on a smile for the little Bitches in the graveyard. Let them talk on the phone, Drive down the road to Jesus, In Daddy's BMW. There's so much to be said For the pretty ones, the smart Ones, the saintly ones. Let her suck dick To make the Good Son smile. Drive down your little road, Say hello to the Bugle Boy and his jeans Before they open up your Pearled Gate. Not much left to be said For the older ones, the fatter ones, The pregnant ones, the Homecoming Queen. Let her know men, To make Jesus blush in his P.J.'s Ride your little storm girl Say goodbye to that "cruel world" No one's around now to talk About the sagging ones, the Trailer Park ones, the Wal-mart ones. Maybe, Baby, that's what you get For being a the good little Homecoming Queen.
