Fundamentals over dinner

 

Sex

 

Jabbing his finger in my face

‘there’s no such thing as a gay Christian’

 

Mocks with a limp wrested gesture

and a side long sneer at my reply,

‘there’s no such thing as a homophobic one either.’

 

Right to life

 

‘There’s no such thing as a good Muslim,’ he asserted.

‘I wouldn’t vote Liberal, they legalised abortion.’

‘But they were the only ones to oppose the war in Iraq,’ I argue

‘Over a million innocent civilians have died’

‘I’m not bothered about that’

spills from the overflow of his heart.
