Do unto others, eh?

It Can’t Be Good For Them
California Proposition 8

They talk about tolerance
and preach
do unto others,
live together in peace.

They walk the same streets
ride the same trains
breathe the same air I breathe.

Then, in the holiest of sanctuaries,
they pull the handle that says
No Not You.

Was it not their own god
who said:
Let he who is
without sin
cast the first vote?
