 A Boston court ruled that the Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman, is unconstitutional.

Unanimous decision; the Defense Of Marriage Act
Isn't Constitutional...  It breaks the law, in fact.
Massachusetts led the way; we sued - which I support.
Now the case is headed for the U.S. Supreme Court.

I don't understand what they're defending anyway;
Why the government lets churches tell them what to say.
No one would compel a church to change their rigid stance,
But our Constitution makes it clear, with just a glance,

We're about protecting rights; at least we say we are.
As a Massachusetts native, promise you - so far -
Sky's not falling; there's no rape and pillage in the streets.
We don't care what married couples do beneath their sheets.

If our fellow citizens can't get equality
Something must be very wrong in Washington D.C.
Justice may be blind, my friends, but she is not some clown.
DOMA?  Meet the SCOTUS... SCOTUS? Strike the DOMA down.


  1. Good poem! I agree with you completely. But I worry about the Supreme Court. No longer can that court be trusted to do the right ... I mean correct ... thing.

    1. I hope that you're wrong and the Right
      Does not have the Court locked up tight.
      It wouldn't be fair.
      Besides, the folks there
      Would find themselves in for a fight.
