Call It Anything But Marriage 
(For the California Legislature)

I used to confuse soccer with football
I thought they were the same
It is the same in another nation's language,
But when I arrived in America, how different it became!
The rules of football are the rules of football
The rules of soccer are the rules of soccer
Just like the union of a man and a woman -- it stands tall
It's called marriage;
When it comes to a man and a non-woman,
Please do not call it marriage...

Poet's Note:  It is hoped that our posterity will not have to clarify when asked if they are married.
