pastor jasper

jasper the pastor doesn’t like gays
     the bible tells him so
        as he reads it,
     though he missed the sentences
     where G-d says
with emphasis
     vengeance is mine
meaning not jasper’s
not ours, not man’s

so bible-misquoting Jasper
doesn’t read all the words
     just enough
     to give spiritual credence
     moral foundation
to his case of homophobia

a friend might suggest to him to read other books
     and perhaps he has
but certainly not freud’s treatises
     on defense mechanisms
or would he have gained insight
into one mechanism in particular
that defends against internal anxiety
caused by you knowing something about yourself
that ya don't want to know
cause ya think its wrong
     and this creates stress
and so he might wonder if homophobia
     is a reaction to his inner feelings
of male preference
and this would be
called reaction formation

reaction formation can be described
as an extreme reaction to the acts you may not do
but want too
so there ya are jasper the  pastor
just doing the Freud dance

but pastor jasper is a man and defiantly not gay
    who wants to set fire to himself
    and burn himself to death
if the supreme court
of the united states
lets gay people get married
     OMG
     gay people getting married

I like people
who have the courage of their convictions
     rugged individuals
     bible thumping ann rands
and thus, applaud his fiery stand
and have offered to bring weenies and buns
     but i thought better of it
weenies and buns might be too provocative
for other reaction formation-ers
and homophobes

so I will bring marshmallows
for making s’mores
