Mardi Gras


You go to the  Mardi Gras

And see the masks

All have your face,

The glitter eyeballs

Staring into space.

The flesh of the revellars

Is excommunicated from colour

It has a deathly pallor,

Their scalps are covered

With wisps of pubic hair,

And cockroaches escape

From their underwear.

You flee to a house

But its your home,

And someone's inside

Writing this poem.

Outside a priest

With a horn

Is handing children porn,

He tells them to have safe sex,

To share some latex

With gender x.

The gay parade chants,

" Love is love! "

You pray

To the Lord above...
