Double Standard

What if the mayor wasn't gay
A teenage honey was his prey
They kiss at seventeen
Next year the whole cuisine
Would we let such a mayor stay?

If hetero, the mayor's a perv
And getting booted quite deserved
But gay, he gets a break
He just made a mistake
And here somehow we lose our nerve

A double-standard is at work
Here up in arms, there just a shirk
What happened is the same
What changes is the shame
A double-standard is at work
