In the twist and the turns in one’s life, God surely shows us a way,
This is what did happen, when I found my friend to be gay.
That’s the boy nextdoor,whom from childhood years I have known,
From our school to our college, together we have side by side grown.
High or low, rich or poor, equally to all he treat,
And always did stop by, to help a blind cross the street.
Be it a wedding or a funeral or a blood bank drive,
Everywhere he was always, the first one to arrive.
My parents despised all my friends, but he was called ‘Mr. Nice’,
Even my sister reluctant to go out with anyone, but with him never thought twice.
On the TV, the Newspapers or the Net, there’s something going on these days,
A new word which has come to shed some light, the word is all about ‘GAYS’.
Going through the debates, on Sec. 377’s judgment, “Was it Wise”?
I saw someone in those ‘Pride Marches’, “Isn’t that ‘Mr. Nice’”?
My eyes stopped the blinks; my heart skipped a beat,
I lay brooding how tomorrow, with him do I meet.
All those fondness, the time together and all that care,
Zoomed aback, and I felt shrouded with an unknown sort of fear.
Then I thought if I take it off my ring, will there be a change in my pearl,
At least one thing I was pretty sure, that he will never steal my girl.
But don’t I have a brain to reason, God’s greatest gift to me,
If I do not use it, what’s the difference between an animal and me?
From yesterday to today, has the world come to an end?
I don’t know about my enemies, but I will STILL call my friends, ‘A Friend’.
If ‘Mr. Nice’ is GAY, then I do pray, “Oh GOD, Please make me one”,
I don’t even care if the whole world does make a lot of fun.
When I asked, “Will you take a pill which will transform you?”, this is what he says,
“I’m not sure , but I probably won’t, coz I’m quite happy staying this way”.
But when I approach a ‘straight’, he did criticize and denounce it, with the majoritarian view,
But clearly I saw a confused and a baffled face, and also something, which made him a bit blue.
