You can't have one without the other

The concept of gays in a marriage One side loves and one will disparage But rule supreme court And one side must retort Justice just had a miscarriage Author's note: Regardless of the outcome from the supreme court, I happen to favor gay marriage. There really is no other conclusion since we are a land of equal rights. We should do all we can to foster a society without discrimination. The arguments against these rights reveal a lot about certain people of religious persuasion. It would be comical if it were not so sad.

I am so impressed, Debbie. I know I have been remiss. It's because I am under work pressure. Although I am at my full retirement age, I can't pull the plug yet. I still intend to comment on all yours because you have such an unusual and wonderful aspect to your writing.

Humor is a sense shared by gays and straights so please go ahead and laugh. We are all good people on both sides of the equation.

See my comment above. It's going to be OK. This is the least of society's problems. People need a break.

Duke! You just became my HERO! Seriously, this limerick is going straight into my favorites!! This is how I see it... how could the expression of love possibly be hurting anyone? The only people that are being hurt are the ones being discriminated against merely for loving another soul! You rock :)

YAY for you. Stand up for what you believe. I was not sure how I felt about this a long time ago. I felt that "civil union" would be the way to go. But if they can't have civil unions in every state, then I guess they need to call it marriage. Love your title.
