Gays, or: Nazis

Serious looks around the circle
Stern countenances
Zoom in on one particularly humorless brow
No alternative-
No alternative to victory!
Victory!
They repeat
They repeat
Themselves a lot 
These days are almost flying by
With victory after victory after victory
But not their victory!
They were promised victory!
No alternative to victory!
The gay Nazis have organized themselves
To steal...
Wait, you don't know
About the gay Nazis? 
The collective West, particularly the USA
No 
longer accepts heterosexuality
In 
fact
Breastfeeding
Babies is illegal -haha-
Children are taken away
For calling their mothers 'Mommy'
Citizens are forced -haha- to march in Pride
Parades; encouraged to undergo sex
Change operations
This -haha- is what transpires
In Georgia -haha- these days
It's become another satellite of the West
A colony
They're trying to colonize us!
To enslave us!
Some things are worse than death, 
Comrades! Why do you think prison
Inmates commit suicide?
Eighty years ago, the Germans
Were the Nazis
Today, it's the West, and we
The Russian people are the new Jews
Sure
The Nazis hated and murdered gays
But this is 2022; everything natural
Has turned on its head
And our forces are now facing
Armies; Legions of gay Nazis
Who want to colonize us; kill us
Until we turn gay.

d’Verse poetics: Allen Ginsberg and the Beat Generation

This poem was written for the recent d’Verse prompt to write in the style of the Beat Generation. Pour out the first thought, the first thing that comes to mind and let the words take you forward.


Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

  1. This is super ironic…some people in America compare queer people to communist Russia, and Russia is comparing us to Nazis… but I’m pretty sure neither of them liked gay people very much ๐Ÿค”

  2. It is no doubt a dangerous propaganda, yes! Thank you so much for writing to the prompt, David! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿท

    1. yeah – it is – and surreal also… it’s hard to believe that this garbage is believed by so many people in the modern world (as naรฏve of me as that may seem)

      1. Did you just summarize the crude russian war propaganda?
        Or it includes some of sentiments coming through the bible vineyards of America?

          1. Thank you for clarifying
            It has similar political overtones from that part of the world, this is why I asked.
            So scary how confusing these propaganda messages are.
            One needs so much discernment to understanding where it is coming from.
