gay marriage for william (just for fun)


this world opens itself to gay marriage
the gay priest presides this solemn marriage
of william to another william
and wilma to another wilma

do you william take william as your spouse
for better or for worse, in sickness and in health
till death do you part?

and william says, yes i do

and so by virtue of the authority vested in my by law
i hereby pronounce you william and william
as spouses

in the presence of your witnesses
wilma and wilma
the groom may now kiss his groom

it is not funny, it can be real as it has become real
nature keeps up with overpopulation
and goes for more copulation
between two same sexes in love with each other's sameness

life is an experiment and so love is an experiment too
love and its quivers
bodies and more bodies warming themselves
hearts fusing as one, how lovely to see?

seriously speaking, in the dark the souls keep on dating
the bodies become so irrelevant, the sexes not important
there is this kiss, this touch, these solvents of our loneliness
these glue and paste that must fill the gap
of our respective emptiness

the same goal the same purpose: we always want to be filled in full

Poem of the Day

My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
