Ellen’s last show by Fiona Goodwin

I’m gay I’m gay I’m gay!
Was her only way
To be true to who she was
She wasn’t perfect like me or you
Let’s face it we always teach what we need to learn
Be kind to one another was the mantra
Such a dangerous mantra
Designed to bring to the surface everything that was not kind
And I quake at all the things I speak that I need to learn.
I’m grateful
To those that see my unconscious unkindness,
And choose not to send in the artillery.
