Not all polemen are firemen

Steve Retchless swirled
like Rocket J. Squirrel,
while Piers Morgan hurled
from a homophobic world.

Sharon was cool.
Howie, so high school,
could not break the rule:
Don't dude-look and drool.

His body was curled
as he whirled and twirled
in a polarized world —
like Rocket J. Squirrel.

Steven Retchless, Semi-Finals ~ America's Got Talent 2011:
(Piers Morgan: "There are lots of men in Vegas sliding down poles; they're called firemen, and that's where it should stay. ... It's not what guys should do.")
