Miss? or Ms?
De facto? They used to call this Living in sin
God won't mind being the butt of a little joke - after all his was not exactly a traditional family was it, one virgin mother and two fathers... I thought that's what IVF stood for.
If you scan the crowd you'll see that God's here with us today.
If God created man then maybe he's a woman because God couldn't be, you know... although... making someone in his own image I mean... camp! There's a word you don't hear very often these days, camp.
One from the Old Testament.
But what I'm here to remind everyone of
is the thing they need to keep close to heart
Love is love, that's what I've been taught,
inside the family of all
doesn't really matter so much if it's a boy or a girl,
as long as love is love, for love is all,
and love we shall the boy or girl
and hope that they may live and love as well,
and we maybe know, but really don't rely on,
the knowledge that love is love despite,
the name of the God construct whatever it may be,
you pick up your own baby
and tell it tenderly that love is love
We all be in, this picture too,
who, celebrate or tolerate the god-construct
and debate what's left of the old testaments...
And some of us wait patiently for a re-mastered hi-definition re-boot of the same old story that actually acknowledges and involves us in this never ending glory, instead of the edit we have right now
which lacks the finer grace of supremacy
as expected of supreme beings as they supremely do
unto me and you
as they do when they don't say
love is love (for me and you), your loves askew,
my right's not for you
So what are a same sex couple supposed to actually do?
Bow our right to assert our interweaving endeavours to old little demi-John's construct that marriage is fundamentally owned by squares, don't expect to put us off, for love remains to be love
and the desire to be, in a me and me pair
just like her and her or he and he
It's quite a natural desire quite a natural place
quite a natural thing, if you ask me.
And if I don't ask, and/or you don't tell,
there's that other Old Testament word called Hell,
where we hide ourselves again and we step right back to when faggots were invented and the civil rights were less than slack,
we can swing on the pendulum while the arc swings wide
and hope to get a foot in the door (of this place) or a message left inside
Or grow our critical mass and demand a mandate against same sex apartheid we certainly can't just let it ride.
We are all family, you be all my brothers and my sisters here with me, so let the hand fit the glove when we raise it in unison, and let love being love,
If we truly have that right to love, then we have the right to see it recognised and respected just in every other way the construct's been invented
to supply the demand of men and women
to declaire their love and show love is love
through the family that they chose to be.
Let's you and me remind all who come to see
what it's all about - is love
because love is love and it's love
Lots of love,
with love David Jobling
