By The Lost Gypsy
Honey, it’s a jungle out there. The world is a cruel place. It won’t be the first time someone has compared it to a wild jungle. And it sure wouldn’t be the last. But my dear I am here to warn you to beware. The gay world of this occluded city is no better or worse, for here also linger animals waiting to quench their thirst.
There is the big grizzly bear chasing after the golden honey, always hungry for more. He will stoop to any level to get what he wants, he will play with your heart, lose the game and then just shrug and say “Oops I did it again!” Beware my dear, for he is to be feared. The big papa bear ain’t anybody’s friend. Not one person he lets close enough. Not one person he lets escape. His looks can be deceiving. Don’t fall for the furry cute little face, the beady little eyes all a part of his illusion – fall and you shall not rise again. It is a jungle out there my dear, as fierce as can be. The animals inside the humans are the worse of them all: at least with the creatures of the wild you can befriend them big or small.
Talking about deceiving looks and back stabbing crooks, how can you forget the fox! The most crooked of them all. You can never predict this one’s moves. His specialty would be his smooth tongue or his quick thinking or just his play with words. He can have you wrapped around his little finger and you wouldn’t even know. And just when you think life couldn’t get better, this one will pull the carpet from under you and stab you in the back without even blinking. Unlike the above mentioned category he won’t just use you and throw you away, he will use you, break you down and then walk away knowing you will have a tough time standing back up. He will find your weak points and play you like a fiddle. Every day brings a surprise with him, which may or may not leave you happy. Please get rid of this one before he leaves you all sappy.
Another one to avoid would by the scavenging hyena. He is a true parasite. He maybe your friend or lover, living in your house, driving your car, and one fine day you come home early and walk into your bedroom and guess what, he is sharing your friends too. This one will be the first to bail when the going gets tough; he will be the first to run when it’s his turn to pick up the tab. He always manages to find himself a sugar daddy to keep him happy. And when he does leave he will make sure to make you feel like it’s all your fault, you were the bad guy and as a punishment for that he shall keep the DVD player you bought, and you are in too much of a shock to figure it out. He will walk all over you and not care the least as long as his needs are met. Get away from him before you get entangled in his net.
Speaking of lying cheating jerks, how can we forget the wolf? He has a family at home, a mate and even a few cubs, yet he hunts for another hole to plug. I can go on and on and on about this species. Just to warn you though, he will lie to you, give you very good treatment and you’ll work till you make him happy and he will probably leave you as soon as he finds another. So get away from him ASAP.
Another one to beware of is the slimy, colour changing chameleon. Blink! And he has changed. No one can predict him – not even himself. He will say something to you and something else about you to another. If not his big mouth, may be his contrasting actions will keep you confused. Quite the hypocrite this one is. He will do exactly the things he hates in others and say something entirely different. Before you can question him the slimy thing will slip out of your grip faster than you realise. He is great for gossip and entertainment but nothing more. If you have a secret keep it away from him else it shall be a news flash soon.
Now, the other creature you shall encounter in your journey through this jungle would be the lost kitten. He is still in the process of coming out of the closet, people usually call him a “kid” and shoo him away. The little kitty has to struggle quite a lot to prove himself, he doesn’t know where he belongs and who is a friend or a foe. Every corner you turn there’s a new lesson to be learnt. Eventually little kitty must learn to fend for himself and grow. The world will change him into a smart wild cat before he may even know.
And before I forget I must mention the cheetah. The fast cunning hunter he corners his prey from afar and pounces in full speed. His hunts are plenty and spread across the country. The rich and the poor, the old and the young, the scientist and the actor – he has done them all. Quite a slut this one is. That is one quality that makes him one hell of a black book. Definitely a god addition to your friend list and it never hurts to have a skilled hunter around too. He is cunning, he is smart and definitely someone who can help you in the ways of the world, probably because he has been there and done that. He was once the little lost kitten himself and now he is the hunter. Just don’t get on his wrong side: you might not survive it.
Last but not the least I shall mention the proud peacock. He is the perfect gay. Not only does he dance like the bird itself but he sings and he acts. He is Jack McFarland personified. He loves everything pretty and nothing can stop him from being himself. The rainbow can be lowered for only so long. He will entertain you, he will make you smile because truly he is very versatile. Being the actor that he is, he will hide his true emotions. He will smile in the face of his most hated enemy as he would to his beloved friend. Behind the pretty feathers there lies a soft heart afraid to get hurt. But being the proud bird of beauty he will seldom show it. Oh well, enjoy the song and the drama while you can. Anger the proud bird at your own risk because when you do it won’t be long before the Red Queen is ordering, “off with his head” – that’s your head.
There are quite a few other creatures out there I could warn you about. But I’d rather not ruin your party. Most of the fun of life is in the different experiences we have and the different things we learn. So now off you go on your journey, and whenever you need help, look for me in the right place!
