consider consquences

dedicated to the fight all LGBT face; in memory of David Kato

how far
would you go?
how deep
is your love?

would you
take your beliefs
and nail
a man to a cross?

would you
follow your heart
and beat
a man to death?

would you
consummate your desire
and make love?

you argue
and spread your word
of conviction

you reason
and tell everyone
what you think

you never
consider consequences
of belief

your heart
is not a private thing
it is open

your mind
is not a quiet cathedral
it is roaring

you took
your hate message
to Africa

you carried
your evil agenda
in the overhead

you spread
unrest untruth
and it cost

a man
lies dead today
he was gay

the dust
under drying blood
wants peace

some days
I can see the future
some days

I love
a man a woman
why can’t you?

how far
would you go?
how deep
is your love?
