Marriage Certificates - Poem by Edward Kofi Louis

After the marriage,
Somebody keeps the marriage certificate;
After the marriage,
Somebody's name changes;
And the children born to this union bear the name of the man.

Learn from these facts to keep you going,
And try to teach one another to stay at peace;
For this marriage certificate means a lot to you.

One seeks for his or her lover,
And one marries his or her lover 'for better or for worse';
But after the marriage,
Somebody keeps the maariage certificate.
