Boys Like Boys

by Merkin


Boys like boys.
Boys grow up with boys.
Boys sleep over with boys.
Boys figure out how it works with boys.

Moms brainwash boys to like girls.
Dads, previously brainwashed, do the same.
Girls, of course, develop expectations.
Boys, of course, fall victim to girls.

Life goes on.

Except — boys still like boys:
In their hearts.
