Moonage Monkey

Oh! You pretty thing,

carefree yet scared,

ready to kick the past in the balls

and skate across the boardwalk

into the sunny smiles and cloudless skies

of a free future you demanded.

Bury those bigots

deep into the closet

where they locked you away,

speak the truth you were forced to suppress.

Spit in the eyes of those fools

and let them see

that you’ve really made the grade.

*for Andrea
