Prop 8 and DOMA and SCOTUS. Oh My!

Supreme Court considers gay marriage: The scene and key players

Proposition 8 and DOMA; in our highest Court.
Won't know until June which sides the Justices support.
Trying to predict it from the questions that they ask,
Trying to detect opinions they attempt to mask,

Keeps the pundits happy 'cause they get to talk about it.
Does it offer any clues on how they'll rule? I doubt it.
The Supremes  could keep it narrow; leave it to the States.
Let the voters get to choose how people pick their mates.

Could decide Prop 8's a case they shouldn't even hear;
That Defense of Marriage (which conservatives hold dear)
Doesn't meet the standards, thus avoiding sweeping change.
But, like Justice Kagan, I agree it's pretty strange;

How can you say marriages are just for making kids?
Or that same sex marriage means your marriage hits the skids?
Love is love and people are just people and no law
Should presume to dictate that you be a ma and pa.
