The Offer

Fag boy declines
your offer
to take part
in society

instead he turns
his back on
police and

he'll sit at home
write a poem
roll over in
his bed

he'll hike up hills
and sleep in caves
knead and bake
his own bread

fag boy sees
the snares you lay
the world with which
you trap

he wants to write
he wants to sing
he wants to kick back
