In human bondage

A hug is not making love

And yet it may still be love

In a tale of two straight men

I see two men hugging each

Other Brian Keenan and John

McCarthy hostages in mutual

Misfortune bonding together

In their cell who hugged in love

Weeping in the ecstasy of agony

I see actors hug through my tears

 

(written on seeing the film "Blind Flight" on the true story of 4 years two journalists one Irish one English spent incarcerated. Great picture well worth your time folks)
