Something I wrote when Wiscounsin became the next state to allow gay marriage.
US Marriage Equality
Once it seemed a far off thing
That all in America might be wed.
Then court struck down that DOMA law
And dominoes began to fall
Through state my state in the US
Waved rainbow flags, pealed wedding bells
Lining up to show their love
Just like all straight couples could do
I’m not surprised at what occurs
It’s something quite inevitable.
But that it’s happening so fast
Well, that cheers and amazes me
Much of the country almost there
With equal rights to love commit
Even the most reddest of states
Polls start to show gay marriage’s okay
Straights have lost their monopoly
To marry, yes and to divorce
That we can all fuck up in love,
Now that’s something to celebrate.
So raise your glass, let’s all be gay!
Let’s party for our freedoms won.
But remember there’s still countries where,
Gay love’s punishable by death.
