Twofer Tuesday Poetry: Do People Still Play Board Games? & Gays and Lesbians Are Just Like Straight Men

Do People Still Play Board Games?

Let me sum up my love life
I meet someone, and we get along
We share many interests
I suggest hanging out or a date or something
I’m immediately ignored and avoided
Rinse and repeat
Express interest and get ignored
Sometimes I just want a friend
But everyone keeps avoiding me
I’ll see these people months or years later
They say hi and are nice but nothing more
They don’t acknowledge ghosting me
I guess I wasn’t their type

Gays and Lesbians Are Just Like Straight Men

I have heard gays
And lesbians
Use the same lines
As straight men
The cheesy pickup lines
The inappropriate comments
I’ve heard them say
To men and women
They could fuck them better
Than their spouse
In front of their spouse
I’ve heard of women raping women
And women raping men
And men raping women
And men raping men
The problem
Isn’t just with men
