Long Poetry

Pulse

Not when fire rains from heaven

Nor when we face some plague

But on the day that we awake

And find kissing causes rage

Rage for me,

Rage for me,

Rage for me,

Rage -

rage in your faith we can say

NO TO HATE

Fifty different forms of love

Have been consigned to their graves

Conveniently we've wrapped them up

In a label we call 'gay'

But hate is hate and hate will hate

Each and every one of us

The only battle to undertake

Is hatred versus love

So

Rage for me,

Rage for me,

Rage for me,

Rage -

rage in your faith we can say

NO TO HATE

Yes

Rage for me,

Rage for me,

Rage for me,

Rage -

rage in your faith we can say

NO TO HATE

Don't argue this as politics

Nor faith versus faith

Don't seal our fate with a kiss

For this is homophobic hate

And

Rage for me,

Rage for me,

Rage for me,

Rage -

rage in your faith we can say

NO TO HATE

Yes

Rage for me,

Rage for me,

Rage for me,

Rage -

rage in your faith we can say

NO TO HATE
