The people speak

The text: “Opposition to gay “marriage” – do you think it will grow?”

Amen.  Now for the UK and the US.

Come gather ’round leftists
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You’ll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you
Is worth savin’
Then you better start swimmin’
Or you’ll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin’.

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won’t come again
And don’t speak too soon
For the wheel’s still in spin
And there’s no tellin’ who
That it’s namin’
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin’.

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway
Don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There’s a battle outside
And it is ragin’
It’ll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin’.

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And loudly proclaim
What we all understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are once more at hand
The enemy’s
Rapidly agin’
No place in the new one
If they can’t lend a hand
For the times they are a-changin’.

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The misguided now
Will later stand fast
As the present now
Will later be past
PC order is
Rapidly fadin’
Into prison the evil
Will later be cast
For the times they are a-changin’.

    Dunno about the posh poems but I think the benders might have pushed their cause a bit too far.

    They have already destroyed the private religious adoption agencies thus rendering all unwanted love-children (formerly known as bastards) to the maladministration of the state “care” system from which most will emerge as drug addicted prostitutes ready for an early grave in prison.

    Now they want to pretend that the State can pretend that two same sex persoms can be ‘married’. LOL. Joe Stalin would have been proud, or perhaps jealous of this degree of presumption.

    It does seem to be changing. As I mentioned on the other post, I really think this is just the starter issue. It will extend then to other issues people are pissed off about, from the smoking ban through to Elfansafetee through to the nanny state and so on.

    Should be fun.

    “Come gather ’round leftists
    Wherever you roam
    And admit that the waters
    Around you have grown……”

    A small wave lapping the beach.

    SAY not the struggle naught availeth,
    The labour and the wounds are vain,
    The enemy faints not, nor faileth,
    And as things have been they remain.

    If hopes were dupes, fears may be liars;
    It may be, in yon smoke conceal’d,
    Your comrades chase e’en now the fliers,
    And, but for you, possess the field.

    For while the tired waves, vainly breaking,
    Seem here no painful inch to gain,
    Far back, through creeks and inlets making,
    Comes silent, flooding in, the Main.

    And not by eastern windows only,
    When daylight comes, comes in the light;
    In front the sun climbs slow, how slowly!
    But westward, look, the land is bright!

    Say not the Struggle Naught availeth
    By Arthur Hugh Clough

    I happen to know some Catholic poofs [South American] and they understand only too well what an insult to many Catholics this is but most of all how much damage it will do to the hard-fought tolerance they have obtained up to now.

    Good Frenchies, they may have some redeeming features after all.

    A feminist group tried to interfere with the legitimate march in France by walking into the march dressed only in underwear and nun’s hats. They let off smoke bombs.

    The crowd turned on them and beat them.
