ODE TO EQUAL MARRIAGE
Equal marriage by 2015
A battle won and an achievement seen
The Tory Right on Election Night
Blamed gay marriage for their plight
They used us as their scapegoats
Told the country we lost them votes
Nadine Dorries said “Cameron, change tack
Or by Christmas face the sack!”
I thought love was patient and love was kind.
But on that part of the Bible the Tory Right are far behind
Their stance on equal marriage fills me with disgust
Nothing more than scapegoating and bloodlust
We are not asking for gold or taking bribes
All we want is equality of experience in our lives
Where’s the romance in civil partnership?
It’s legalistic that’s the truth and that’s it.
Where is your evidence that gay marriage does not make sense?
We are being persecuted having committed no crime nor offence
Jesus would want it too
The Pharisees would not that’s true.
Let us hope for Equal Marriage by 2015
An objective won, justice seen.
Obama supports it, did you see?
It’s made America overjoyed with glee.
What about being Gay in the UK?
Equal marriage David Cameron in your sight?
Or are you scared of the Tory right?
