I Don't Like Custard

by Paul Hirst   Nov 8, 2017

I don't like custard
and you do

I'm more red
and your blue

I prefer oysters
you actually like snails

I'm a dolphin type of guy
you prefer whales

When were out you drink Jack D
Its straight vodka for me

And at the end of the night
and we head home
I will be taking Mary
you will be hugging Paul

Were both different in every way
I'm boringly straight
your flamboyantly gay

But there's nothing wrong
with being gay or straight
so why all this fu****g hate

    This is brilliant! I actually think homophobia is a very useful filter in immediately weeding out the idiots that I'd want nothing to do with ... anyone secure with their own sexuality doesn't give a flying fig about how someone else prefers to have sex!
    The pointlessness of it all is so well expressed here. Love it! :-)

    ok this is fun because of all the differences which makes a less boring life, the rhyming is smooth and the punch line pretty powerful which is why it'll get my nomination as we may all be different but as you say why all this hatred?? you don't see illnesses discriminating
