Be grateful for what you have,
I’m grateful for my marriage
with my husband.
But many folks across the country,
emboldened with power,
want to rip our marriage apart,
calling our love unconstitutional,
along with many other nasty
words, phrases, and threats.
Seeking the goal of allowing
states to make our union illegal,
or perhaps a full-fledged federal ban.
So I’ll be grateful for what I have,
as I’ve been told,
before it all gets legislated away.
Happy Fourth of July
