A Wink and a Nod

They are straight
and he is gay.
He’s the bartender
and Friday is the day
they sit at the bar
and discuss what may
and politics of Mayday, Mayday!
They have much to say
and they agree on many things
in the country going so far astray.
He always gives them
one free martini of the day
and they say thanks silently
with a tip, a wink and a nod
to help till his pay-day.
Nothing is said.
What is there to say?
Just mutual appreciation
between two straights and a gay
on Thank God It’s Friday
in the country
that has lost its way.
“If that’s all there is, my friend,
then break out the booze and let’s…”
commiserate the night away.
