A story about being Different.
Randy walks on his toes!
He's GAY!
Randy is poor!
He's BAD!
Randy is Different!
He's INFERIOR!

Let's beat him up
every chance we get!
Let's make his life
a living hell,
and torment
everybody who loves him,
because he's queer,
and we CAN!

KACHING
KACHING
KACHING

Eighteen YEARS,
walking through Hell,
never knowing
whom to trust,
seldom daring
to love anybody;
just stumbling
from day to day,
Surviving...…..

somehow.

Life rolled on,
as it always DOES,
and Tippytoes
somehow managed
to eke out a living,
to find love,
and keep on going,
the naysayers
light-years
and an eternity
behind.
