If I Were a Gay

If I were a Gay
I’d work out every day
to get rid of this flab
and my body’d look fab

If I were a Gay
I would sashay by soldiers
chasse elevé
dancing shoulder to shoulder

If I were a Gay
I would ask and I’d tell
every pistol and shell
if they’re going my way

If I were a Gay
I would lie deep in sod
as my family pray
that my soul reaches God

If I were a Gay
I can honestly say
that the boys would cry
I was a hell of a guy

Scott Pilgrim vs. The War Wolf

Alexander the Great was born on a day
that was too powerful for most men.
It did Bruce Lee in, inflamed brain or poison;
it almost had Hitler, but missed, the bomb
going off inches from where it was planned;
Jerusalem lay under siege; Chartres, too,
later that century; Stirling Castle
fell after Edward One of England set
his War Wolf on its walls. The Battles of
Ankara and Peachtree Creek; rioting;
hijacked planes; IRA bombs; explosions
on boats; assassinations; major train wrecks.
I learn history from Wikipedia;
there’s no space for “This Day in Comic Books.”
