Bland On Bland – Union

blndonblandpoem-featuredThe theme for this week’s JVG Radio Method poem is “Union“.

Good one JVG ( not often I say that), one of the best topics for ages. And it couldn’t be more timely. #MarraigeEquality is a no brainer. Here are my thoughts…

Ed stop slacking off and get your bum out of hosptital, you are missed mate. We all want you back.

Marriage is union of woman and man
Variants need not apply

Do we blindly accept what has always been
Without ever questioning why?

Where is the threat? Where is the danger?
What do we stand to lose?

Two adults in love gives cause to rejoice
What right have we to refuse?

Love is a blessing, not a sin
Only love can unite

Security, equality, recognition
Not ours to bestow – it’s a right

Can we not see the pain and anguish
Distrust and alienation?

Can we hide behind the gods we serve
To justify discrimination?

Machiavellian claims to family values
A front for persecution

A law for some but not for all
Demeans the very institution

Now a plebiscite, a cynical act
Good governance cast aside

A platform for bigots and prejudice
Which can only further divide

Leadership sadly lacking
An issue sidestepped too long

From ‘The Den of Iniquity’ comes ‘The Din of Inequity’
It is time to right a wrong
