Gay and Happily Unholy Matrimony

They of tobacco kings and fancy European estate rings.
wearing the uniform of a farmer with a straw hat.
Or so you'd think the homophobe may appear,
easier to spot than a walrus in a cornfield.
But some sport suits and college degrees.
They forget it's 2014, not 1614 at all.
And that it's not okay to say "squaw."
Or hee and haw at the men in pink,
the ones whose love waited years
and could've waited even longer
on any law by the City of D.C.
