White House Rainbow by Nate Fluharty on Twitter

The people whom we always clamber on,
Who feel our grasping hands and get our calls,
Whose smiles we pay for long before they’re gone
And in whose light or dark we rise or fall,
Are fools and preening idiots every one,
Whose lives are arguments so Byzantine
They make of night a day whose moon’s the sun
And bury all their weaknesses within it.
But let the man whose mind’s gone dim come near
And let his soul be focused through his bright
Unblinking eyes, and all around a wind of fear
Will rise and all dissembling hearts be scourged with light.
So let the lovely build their little worlds—
I’ll stay here with the retards, fags and girls.
