Minority Soldiers

I’m constantly in awe of

Black cops, Queer cops—

Minority soldiers.

“Queer” defenders of

Normalcy, beholden.

These people are braver than I—

They face reality each day and

Do what they must to keep us safe

And yet, everyone is always saying

How racist and homophobic they are, despite

Being what they supposedly hate.

They are underrepresented and underpaid.

I am sick to death over all the senseless, murderous rage

But that doesn’t mean all of them are the same.
