At the Stonewall


On this date in nineteen hundred and sixty-nine
An incident happened at a certain place and time
When police in New York City invaded a gay bar
Intending to create havoc, and in order to mar ...

Certain freedoms people have to congregate ...
To establish relationships and to secure mates
Something everyone has the right to do ... as long
As they don't hurt others, as they create those bonds

- Tristram
