People PLEASE ... !!!
Just Be ... STRAIGHT UP ... !!!!!
  
Honesty's Easy ...  
It Really A'int Tough ... !!!  
    
If You're Gay ... BE Gay ...    
DON'T Try To Play Games ...  
    
If You Sway ... That Way ...  
Then Be ... That Way ... !!!  
    
But REMEMBER  I'm STRAIGHT ... !!!!!  
I Want GIRLS ... ALL DAY ... !!!!!  
    
Don't Tell Me How To Be ...  
And We'll Be .... OKAY .... !!!!  
    
The Last Poem I Wrote ...  
Was Called ... " Two Faced " ...  
    
The Reaction It Received ...  
Was FAR FROM ................................... Great ....... !!!!!!!  
    
I'm Cool With That ...  
In A ... " Funny Kind of Way " ... ?!?  
    
I Guess This PROVES ... ?  
That Things I Say ...  
    
Put A STRAIN On Those ...  
With DEVIOUS Ways ... !!!  
    
They CLAIM To Be Straight ...  
But ... "Harbour HATE" ... ?!?  
    
Hatred of ...  
My Poetic Mind State ...    
    
Their Veins PULSATE ...  
When I Enter The Place ... !!!  
And Most CAN'T LOOK ME ...  
......... In My Face .......... !!!!!!?!!!!!  
    
What's Up With That ... ?  
Could It Be Cos' I'm Black ... ?!?  
    
Or Could It Be ... ?  
Cos' I Speak What's FACT ... !?!  
    
Getting ... "under the skin" ...  
of Those Who Swim ...  
in Waters FILLED ...  
With YES ... Sharks' Fins ... !!!!!!!  
    
They Take The PLUNGE ...  
And Jump RIGHT IN ... !!!  
    
But Like They Say ...  
    
YES ... FOOLS Rush in ... !?!?!  
    
Then Comes THE BITE ... !!!  
NO KISS ... " Goodnight " ...  
    
Their Now ... "TRAPPED IN" ...  
...... The Devils' Pie ...... !!!  
    
A Pie That's FILLED ...  
By Those Who LIE ... !!!  
    
This Pie's ... "STENCH FILLED" ...  
Like The Mets' ... " Pig Sty " ... !!!!!  
    
Why Oh WHY ... ?!?  
Do People ... " Imply " ...  
They Speak THE TRUTH ...  
..... Instead of Lies .....  
    
FACE The TRUTH ...  
FACE What's YOU ...  
FACE ... YOURSELF ...  
NOT ME ... I'm Cool ... !!!!!  
    
I'm Just ... " God's Tool " ...    
    
But What Are YOU ... ???  
    
Are YOU From The School ...  
of ... TWO FACED FOOLS ... !?!  
    
Do You ...  
Choose To REFUSE ...  
To HEAR The ... TRUTH ... ?!?  
    
EVEN When ...  
YOU ARE The PROOF ... !?!  
    
Those Who TALK ...  
But ... DO NOT Listen ...  
Are Those Who Wonder...  
What They're ............................................. Missing ..... ???  
    
What You're MISSING ...  
Is What's ... TRUE ...  
    
What You PUT OUT ...  
COMES BACK To ... You ... !!!  
    
DON'T BE A Fool ... !!!
DON'T BE ... UNTRUE ... !!!  
    
Say What You FEEL ... !!!!!!!!  
    
It May .... REVEAL ...............................  
    
A Side of You ...  
WITHOUT ... Issues ... !!!  
    
DON'T Worry If ...  
You NEED ... " Tissues " ... !!!  
    
EVERYONE ...  
Has Felt ... " The Blues " ... !!!!!  
    
Just REMEMBER THESE WORDS ... !!!  
    
Stand STRONG Stand TOUGH ...  
And ... MOST OF ALL ...  
    
Just Be ...  
    
..... " STRAIGHT UP " .......
Inspired by experiences I had in the days when I used to frequent the poetry circuit in London, but as a general rule, I prefer those who can be what this poem suggests .....
