Let Us Be Friends In Secret


let us be friends in secret

for you are too odd to know

in some public venue your

great oddities will show

I say this to keep you safe

from the jabs of others

but I cannot defend you

if the others are my brothers

best if you are quiet

best if you stand back

away from where you might

some bad attention attract

I AM not ashamed of you

but knowing you is awkward

it is OTHER PEOPLE who will

hurt you when they talk hard

but I cannot defend you

or speak up for your right

those OTHER PEOPLE are the ones

I party with each night

So better you should stand away

and not join in the party

the OTHERS won’t know what to do

with one so odd and arty

So I stood away as I had been asked

stood away a lifetime as it passed)
