Rather, it appears to me
As special pleading, don’t you see,
Equality is not the name
For making difference all the same
And social change, go carefully
About your task, respectfully;
If to shadow-lands dissent
Is forced, we’ll find new ways to vent
And those could sting.
For social concord, here’s a thing
That could restore freedoms of old –
Instead of choosing to be told
What’s right, equal, or ‘appropriate’;
Perhaps we should de-legislate
And banish State from communal bed,
Let couples choose to state instead
What they are or wish to be –
Let clerics moot matrimony.
