Why Don’t You Come on Back to the War?

I’m not.

I’m not fighting your white liberal guy culture war.

I already fought beside the neo-cons to protect your right to hate Arabs.

I already sagely nodded while you bitched about newsletters while you sat in resigned silence about the crime with your hands gripped to chair.

I resigned in silence to the young Mexican queens down the block who voted for a mass murderer to protect the right to have a fucking piece of paper.

I championed murder enthusiasts to defend our vaunted right to not believe in sky fairies.

Your tests of me in support of just another form of Kulturkampf are a foot on my neck.  With an occasional to stomp to remind me how white, liberal and guy I’m not.

And just because the foot on my neck might be wearing a Birkenstock or owned by another queer doesn’t mean it’s not a foot and it’s not on my neck.

Your boot on the neck of an entire people.

I’m not coming back to the war.
