The Furthest Thing From My Mind
Several years ago,
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
If I had witnessed a guy...
With hair longer than my sister's.
And he wore earrings and fingernail polish...
The furthest thing from my mind would be,
That he just might play professional sports.
Maybe even be a wrestler.
And a loving doting father!
THAT would not be on my mind.
If I saw a beautiful woman in those years gone,
I would not think of her as a boxer.
Or a basketball player or a race track driver.
THAT would not be on my mind either.
Those images once portrayed...
As the ideal one to idolize?
Are not in these times realized.
That's why I am quite surprised,
As to why one would question another's sexuality!
And THAT seems to be on everyone's mind.
