The rainbow sprang from drizzle and beam
When George Ives kissed Oscar Wilde,
Where colors of pride were born.
“It’s an optical illusion”
Said the CIS MAN with a lab coat
A nerd of knowledge,
While the CIS MAN on clouds proclaimed
“It’s a meteorological phenomenon”
It was a phenomenon, Indeed,
Anonymous for many.
Ireland, of Royal charm,
Charmed us with leprechaun’s treasure,
Non-existent évidence, a myth,
He’s a fairy, a pixie, or St. Patrick?
Our foolish humans believed so.
The 21st Century hoi polloi-
Teen moms, Single fathers, George Floyds, and men kissing men.
Wait! Men kissing men?
GAY bars were established. (Long time ago)
The gay-bashers chased the LESBIAN COUPLE from the apartment
While the BISEXUAL WOMAN tried to realize,
Who she wants to date.
The CEO, A CIS WOMAN refused the TRANS WOMAN who had muscular feet.
‘Non-traditional love’-2008’s literature turmoil.
Bombs came in the form of words,
Injury came in the form of heartbreaks,
The LGBTQ movement came into life,
Speaking of love,
Called the rainbow movement -Until the pot of gold is discovered!
Their pressure, the heat.Their tears, the rain.
LGBTQ is long-term, but LGBTQ simply connotes Humanity.
