Senate Supports Selfsame Sexy Marryin' (poem)

Whooee! Well, regular readers'll mebbe remember that I ain't got much use fer the retirement home fer friends o' pryministers we call the Canajun Senate. No matter what I think, the senate hasta sign off on any laws getting passed by the remembers o' the commonhouse. Well, them senators did their job an passed bill C-38, the selfsame sexy marryin' law.

In honour o' the occasion, I wrote up a little wee poem.

Ode to C-38

Go fill up yer teacups an' all gather 'round.
I'll tell you about a fine day,
When the senators up there in Ottawa town,
Made it legal fer marryin' gay.

The debate it had raged fer more'n three years
And then they passed C-38,
Making it legal fer queers t' wed queers,
Now they don't hafta fornicate.

Most Canajun people is proud o' the fact
Equal rights was extended t' gays.
Soon Chambers o' Commerce'll get in the the act,
Lurin' tourists with Homo-Theme Days.

But off t' the right, there's a grumblin' sound,
From Conservative Stephen Harpoon.
He imagines himself in a gay weddin' gown,
An' it makes pore ol' Stevie Boy swoon.

Ol' Steve won't give up with his anti-gay fight.
If elected, that law he's revokin'.
More'n half o' Canajuns say that law is alright.
Steve feller, what are you smokin'?

The fight it's all over. Equal rights won.
Opponents should jest fade away.
Summer's the time fer weddin' day fun.
Now, some o' those weddin's are gay.

Way off in the future we'll talk of these days
An' laugh at ourselves an' our fears,
When some people thought that marryin' gays
Would turn the whole world inta queers.
