I, Too, Sing America

I, too, sing America.

I am the darker gay brother.
They ask me not to bring it up
When we are fighting for Civil Rights
But I laugh,
And bring it up anyway
And stand strong

I am at the table gay and all
While we are fighting for our rights
Nobody’ll dare
Say to me,
“Don’t talk about being gay”

They’ll see how beautiful I am
And be ashamed—

I, too, am America.
